Low Reynolds number flows by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films( visu )
19 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 100 libraries worldwide
Sir Geoffrey I. Taylor describes and discusses characteristics of the motion of fluids using a variety of models, and demonstrates how in low Reynolds number flows a rough estimate is provided by the Reynolds number scale of the relative importance of inertia and viscosity
Fundamentals of boundary layers by Frederick Abernathy( visu )
15 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Demonstrates viscous incompressible boundary layers, their origin, growth, response to pressure gradients, transition from laminar to turbulent state and differences in behavior in laminar and turbulent layers
Flow visualization ( visu )
17 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Stephen J. Kline demonstrates the use of flow visualization in solving engineering problems and establishing mathematical models for analysis of flow fields. Explains the kinematic concepts linking visual observations to the velocity field in steady and unsteady flow
Surface tension in fluid mechanics ( visu )
17 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
Presents a series of experiments to show that surfaces exert forces. Defines the fundamental boundary conditons governing the effects of these forces. Includes illustrations of nucleation, "wine tears", swimming bubbles, and high-speed pictures of the breakup of water sheets and soap films
Turbulence by U Frisch( visu )
16 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
Illustrates aspects of turbulence, including the effect of Reynolds number on inception and on turbulent flows increased pressure drop in pipe-flow, efficient mixing, turbulent transport of momentum and scalar properties, Reynolds stress, and effects of buoyancy
Rheological behavior of fluids ( visu )
15 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Non-Newtonian and Newtonian viscous fluid behaviour is contrasted using several different substances
Pressure fields and fluid acceleration ( visu )
18 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Presents steady-flow experiments in which the pressure gradient, as the main force affecting fluid acceleration, is demonstrated
Cavitation ( visu )
22 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
Shows examples of cavitation on hydrofoils, marine propellers, pumps, turbines & dam spillways. Varies flow speed, hydrofoil incidence, ambient pressure & propeller rpm to demonstrate their effects on the strength and extent of the cavitating region
Flow instabilities ( visu )
19 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
The main experiment, generation of surface waves by wind in a water channel, is used to illustrate the general features of flow instability. The curve of neutral stability is developed by systematically varying wind speed and wave frequency. Shorter experiments suggest the pervasiveness of instabilities in fluid flow phenomena and demonstrate the existence of parameters with critical values which include instabilities in circular Couette flow and stratified fluids, convective instabilities, vortex shedding and others
Channel flow of a compressible fluid by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films( visu )
13 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 libraries worldwide
Schlieren flow visualization and simultaneous display of pressure distribution alon a channel of varying area demonstrate the phenomena of choking, blocking and starting. Shows supersonic flow, Mach waves, normal shock waves and supersonic compression
Stratified flow ( visu )
12 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Demonstrates that density variations, together with gravity, make possible forces that can generate internal waves, inhibit turbulent diffusion, or create strong velocity gradients and jets
Waves in fluids by Arthur E Bryson( visu )
16 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
Presents experimental demonstrations of concepts in one-dimensional wave motion using a water channel, a flume, and shock tubes
Deformation of continuous media ( visu )
15 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
Explains deformation and its resolution into component motions. Presents an analysis of deforming patterns, marked on a shear flow in a stationary reference frame and in a reference frame rotating with the pattern
Secondary flow ( visu )
15 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
Demonstrates secondary flows caused by the imposition of primary-flow pressure gradients on low-momentum fluid in sheer layers. Includes in the demonstrations secondary flows in a free vortex, in a rotating body of fluid, and in a bend in a channel
Magnetohydrodynamics by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films( visu )
14 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 libraries worldwide
Describes and illustrates interactions between electromagnetic and velocity fields which are central to magnetohydrodynamics. Discusses changes in pressure fields and changes of vorticity
Boundary layer control by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films( visu )
14 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Illustrates means by which airfoil design can be modified to control transitions from laminar to turbulent flow and from laminar flow to flow separation
Aerodynamic generation of sound ( visu )
12 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
Describes the mechanism of sound generation by turbulence resulting from an instability of steady flow, discusses quadrupoles in detail, and illustrates the fundamentals of jet noise generation
