Shows surface waves generated by wind in a water channel to illustrate the general features of flow instability
Channel flow of a compressible fluid by National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films( Visual )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 64 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. Supersonic flow, Mach waves, normal shock waves and supersonic compression are shown
Deformation of continuous media( Visual )

15 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 by Arthur E Bryson( Visual )

16 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents experimental demonstrations of concepts in one-dimensional wave motion using a water channel, a flume, and shock tubes
Secondary flow( Visual )

15 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
