Fluid mechanics print that page


The study of fluid mechanics goes back at least to the days of ancient Greece , when Archimedes investigated fluid statics and buoyancy and formulated his famous law known now as the Archimedes' Principle . Rapid advancement in fluid mechanics began with Leonardo da Vinci (observation

Foil (fluid mechanics) print that page

A foil is a solid object with a shape such that when placed in a moving fluid at a suitable angle of attack the lift (force generated perpendicular to the fluid flow) is substantially larger than the drag (force generated parallel the fluid flow). If the fluid is a gas , the foil is | 2011/7/16 12:41:05

Hamiltonian fluid mechanics print that page

Take the simple example of a barotropic , inviscid vorticity-free fluid . Then, the conjugate fields are the mass density field ρ and the velocity potential φ . The Poisson bracket is given by and the Hamiltonian by: where e is the internal energy density, as a function of | 2011/4/28 6:25:57

Splash (fluid mechanics) print that page


In fluid mechanics , a splash is a sudden disturbance to the otherwise quiescent free surface of a liquid (usually water ). The disturbance is typically caused by a solid object suddenly hitting the surface, although splashes can occur in which moving liquid supplies the energy. This use

Continuum mechanics print that page

information about the particular material studied is added through a constitutive relation . Continuum mechanics deals with physical properties of solids and fluids which are independent of any particular coordinate system in which they are observed. These physical properties are then represented | 2011/10/1 6:28:32
