Low Reynolds number flows ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1966 and 1988 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member 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 ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Illustrates boundary layer concepts and phenomena using demonstration experiments in water and glycerine
Turbulence ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member 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
Flow visualization ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member 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 ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and held by 90 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
Rheological behavior of fluids ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in English and held by 79 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
Pressure fields and fluid acceleration ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents steady-flow experiments in which the pressure gradient, as the main force affecting fluid acceleration, is demonstrated
Cavitation ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 78 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
Stratified flow ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents demonstration-experiments showing interface waves 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
Secondary flow ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Demonstrates secondary flows caused by the imposition of primary-flow pressure gradients on low-momentum fluid in sheer layers
Deformation of continuous media ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and held by 72 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
Flow instabilities ( Visual )
13 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 71 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 ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and held by 70 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
Waves in fluids ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Visualizes some of the basic phenomena of wave motion in fluids
Vorticity ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: Illustrates the concepts of vorticity and circulation, and shows how these concepts can be useful in understandin g fluid flows
Rotating flows ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in English and held by 64 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 )
8 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes the mechanism of sound generation by turbulence resulting from an instability of steady flow. Discusses quadropoles in detail and illustrates the fundamentals of jet noise generation
Rarefied gas dynamics ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1967 and 2005 in English and held by 56 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
Magnetohydrodynamics ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Describes and illustrates interactions between electromagnetic and velocity fields which are central to magnetohydrodynamics; discusses changes in pressure fields due to irritational JXB forces, changes of vorticity by rotational JXB forces, induced currents and time constants for their decay, and Hartmann, boundary layers, and Alfv́en waves
