12 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in English and held by 94 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 by Frederick H Abernathy( Visual )

11 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

13 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and held by 82 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 monumentum and scalar properties, Reynolds stress, and effects of buoyancy
Surface tension in fluid mechanics( Visual )

14 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English and held by 80 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 )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: 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
Rheological behavior of fluids( Visual )

12 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in English and held by 70 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 )

15 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 68 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 )

16 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

11 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in English 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
Secondary flow( Visual )

12 editions published between 1964 and 2005 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

9 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 62 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
Deformation of continuous media( Visual )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and held by 62 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
