Effects of Fluid Compressibility (Hunter Rouse)

Wave generation in fluids: Compressibility, analogy between gravitational and elastic waves, effects on fluid patterns, elastic waves, surges, water and blood hammer, isothermal and adiabatic departure from the constant-density flow (0:00 to 9:27); Shock waves: Analogy with two-dimensional patterns produced by concentric waves, analogy with the surge in open channel flow, Schlierern measurements applied to the subsonic and supersonic flows around simple body forms - sphere, plate, cylinder-and lifting vanes (9:28 to 15:36)

This web site was launched by Prof. Michele Mossa of the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy) with the initial support of Fondazione Caripuglia, Bari, Italy for the Research Project LIC-MON of 2003 and of the Project IMCA (Integrated Monitoring of Coastal Areas) financed by MIUR PON D.M. 593/00. Later, the initiative was supported with other Prof. Michele Mossa’s funds, most recently provided by the RITMARE Project.
