  • Falling Flexible Sheets 

    Alben, Silas (2010-08-04)
    We present a fluid dynamics video showing simulations of flexible bodies falling in an inviscid fluid. Vortex sheets are shed from the trailing edges of the bodies according to the Kutta condition. The basic behavior is ...
  • Numerical simulation of transom-stern waves 

    Hand, Randall E.; Valenciano, Miguel; George, Kevin; Biddlecome, Tom; Walters, Richard; Stephens, Mike; O'Shea, Thomas T.; Brucker, Kyle A.; Dommermuth, Douglas G. (APS DFD Gallery of Fluid Motion, 2010-11-23)
    The flow field generated by a transom stern hullform is a complex, broad-banded, three-dimensional system marked by a large breaking wave. This unsteady multiphase turbulent flow feature is difficult to study ...
  • Electroworming : The behaviors of Caenorhabditis (C.) elegans in DC and AC electric fields 

    Chuang, Han-Sheng; Raizen, David; Dabbish, Nooreen; Bau, Haim (2010-10-15)
    The video showcases how C. elegans worms respond to DC and AC electrical stimulations. Gabel et al (2007) demonstrated that in the presence of DC and low frequency AC fields, worms of stage L2 and larger propel themselves ...
  • Historical Essay on Agriculture and Rural Life -Colorado 

    Colorado State University (United States Agricultural Information Network (USAIN), 2003)
    Historical essay describing Colorado's agriculture and rural life. Provided by Colorado State University as part of “Preserving the History of United States Agriculture and Rural Life: State and Local Literature, 1820-1945, ...
  • Historical Essay on Agriculture and Rural Life -Alabama 

    Auburn University (United States Agricultural Information Network (USAIN), 1995)
    Historical essay describing Alabama's agriculture and rural life. Provided by Auburn University as part of “Preserving the History of United States Agriculture and Rural Life: State and Local Literature, 1820-1945, a ...
  • Fluid Dynamics Video of flow around a seismic streamer 

    Elboth, Thomas; Lilja, Didrik; Warzawski, Jakub; Steinsbo, Terje (2008-10-06)
    This video shows a high Re-number unsteady turbulent boundary layer surrounding a long cylinder that is towed through the ocean. Previous work on flow around long cylinders have often focused on the case where the ...
  • Whipping Instabilities in Electrified Liquid Jets 

    Marin, Alvaro G.; Riboux, Guillaume; Loscertales, Ignacio G.; Barrero, Antonio (2008-10-01)
    A liquid jet may develop different types of instabilities, like the so-called Rayleigh-Plateau instability, which breaks the jet into droplets. However, another type of instabilities may appear when we electrify a liquid ...
  • Fluid Flower 

    Lee, Minhee; Kim, Ho-Young (2008-10-06)
    In microfluidic technologies, direct patterning of liquid without resorting to micromachined solid structures has various advantages including reduction of the frictional dissipation and the fabrication cost. This fluid ...
  • Collision of a sphere onto a wall coated with a liquid film 

    Ardekani, Arezoo; Rangel, Roger (2008-09-22)
    Particle-particle and particle-wall collisions occur in many natural and industrial applications such as sedimentation, agglomeration, and granular flows. To accurately predict the behavior of particulate flows, fundamental ...
  • 3D vortex formation of rigid and flexible plates in impulsively starting motion 

    Kim, Daegyoum; Gharib, Morteza (2008-10-10)
    Three-dimensional vortex formation process for plates in impulsive motion is investigated experimentally by using defocusing digital particle image velocimetry (DDPIV). Rigid and flexible plate cases are compared in order ...
