Fractional models in hydromechanics

Topic and purpose. The last two decades are marked by wide spreading fractional calculus in theoretical description of the natural processes. Replacement of the integer-order operators by their fractional (and even complex) counterparts opens up a continuous field of new differential equations in which the standard set of equations of theoretical physics (wave, diffusion, etc.) is represented by separate spikelets at points with integer coordinates. But what do the fractional-order derivatives mean physically?
