8 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates the concepts of vorticity and circulation, and shows how these concepts can be useful in understandin g fluid flows
Fundamentals of boundary layers by Frederick Abernathy( Visual )

Illustrates boundary layer concepts and phenomena using demonstration experiments in water and glycerine
Turbulence( Visual )

11 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction à l'étude des écoulements turbulents, en particulier ceux rencontrés dans la nature. Explication par Robert W. Stewart (Univ. of British Columbia) des attributs propres de la turbulence, à travers la démonstration d'expériences réalisées en laboratoire et dans la nature
Surface tension in fluid mechanics( Visual )

13 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a series of experiments to show that surfaces exert forces. Defines the fundamental boundary conditions 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
Flow visualization( Visual )

10 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposé des avantages de modèles d'écoulements réguliers, instables et turbulents servant de base à des modèles mathématiques, puis à des calculs d'ingénieurs. Méthodes expérimentales rendant visible la structure de l'écoulement; explication des concepts cinématiques reliant l'observation visuelle aux descriptions schématiques obtenues, aux prédictions permises, enfin à la vérification expérimentale
Rheological behavior of fluids( Visual )

12 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates the rheological behavior of fluids which do not obey the Navier-Stokes equations. Demonstrates non-Newtonian properties by non-linear steady flows and by the time-dependent visco-elastic behavior of such materials. Contrasts the non-Newtonian behavior with Newtonian fluid behavior in similar experiments
Flow instabilities( Visual )

17 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member 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
Cavitation( Visual )

16 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member 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
Channel flow of a compressible fluid( Visual )

10 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schlieren flow visualization and simultaneous display of the pressure distribution along a channel of varying area demonstrate the phenomena of choking, blocking and starting. Shows supersonic flow, Mach waves, normal shock waves and supersonic compression
Secondary flow( Visual )

13 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces the concept of secondary flow, contrasting it with primary flow, and uses models to demonstrate various types
Deformation of continuous media( Visual )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member 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
Waves in fluids( Visual )

12 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces some of the basic phenomena of gravity waves, using models of water waves to demonstrate the behaviors of various types of one-dimensional waves. Illustrates how the concepts developed for gravity waves also apply to compressibility waves in gases
Rotating flows( Visual )

10 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates the phenomena associated with rotation of homogeneous fluids, including horizontal trajectories in surface gravity waves, low and high-Rossby-number flows around a sphere, Taylor walls, normal modes of oscillation, and Rossby waves in a cylindrical annulus
Aerodynamic generation of sound( Visual )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1988 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: Describes the mechanism of sound generation by turbulence resulting from an instability of steady flow. Illustrates the fundamentals of jet noise generation
Eulerian and lagrangian descriptions in fluid mechanics( Visual )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses a computer-animated film to illustrate the two principal ways of describing fluid motion. Shows displacement, velocity, and acceleration fields, steady and unsteady Eulerian velocity fields, and the substantial derivative
Pressure fields and fluid acceleration( Visual )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1988 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents steady-flow experiments in which the pressure gradient, as the main force affecting fluid acceleration, is demonstrated
Stratified flow( Visual )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member 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
Rarefied gas dynamics( Visual )

8 editions published between 1967 and 1988 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows the evolution of flow fields as density is varied from continuum levels to the rarefied levels of free-molecule flow. Demonstrates the interaction of free-molecular flows with solid surfaces and portrays the role of the molecular mean-free path
