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 inc Encyclopaedia Britannica( Visual )

14 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

16 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrates important aspects of turbulence: effect of Reynolds number on inception; increased pressure drop in pipe-flow; turbulent transport of momentum and scalar properties
Surface tension in fluid mechanics( Visual )

17 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member 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
Flow visualization( Visual )

16 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates the use of flow visualization to improve understanding of complex flows involving boundary layer separation and transition, vortex generation and turbulence. Also illustrates kinematic concepts in steady and unsteady flows
Pressure fields and fluid acceleration( Visual )

18 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

15 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in English and held by 72 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
Cavitation( Visual )

22 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows examples of cavitation on hydrofoils, marine propellers, pumps, turbines and dam spillways. Varies flow speed, hydrofoil incidence, ambient pressure and propeller rpm to demonstrate their effects on the strength and extent of the cavitating region
Flow instabilities( Visual )

19 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 67 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
Channel flow of a compressible fluid by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films (U.S.)( Visual )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member 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( Visual )

12 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents demonstration-experiments showing interface wave between fluids of different densities and internal waves and lee waves in continuously-stratified fluids flowing over various obstacles. Discusses relevance to channel flows, oceanography, and meteorology
Waves in fluids by Arthur E Bryson( Visual )

15 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Visualizes some of the basic phenomena of wave motion in fluids
Deformation of continuous media( Visual )

15 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains deformation and its resolution into component motion. 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( Visual )

15 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates secondary flows caused by the imposition of primary-flow pressure gradients on low-momentum fluid in sheer layers
Rotating flows( Visual )

14 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in English and held by 58 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
Magnetohydrodynamics by National Committee for Fluid mechanics Films (U.S.)( Visual )

14 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member 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
Rarefied gas dynamics( Visual )

13 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in English and held by 51 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
