Fluid Motion in a Gravitational Field (Hunter Rouse)

Gravity action on liquid flows: Gravity effects, hydrostatic pressure distribution, fluid-body rotation,  confined flow, Bernoulli equation, hydraulic and energy grade lines, liquid jets, free-surface outflows, overflow, and underflow, specific energy in open-channel flow, Froude number (0:00 to 12:00); Gravitational waves: Wave characteristics, wave propagation [including aspects of generation, celerity, reflection, stability, reduction to steadiness], type of waves [includes oscillatory, standing , solitary, surge, the hydraulic jump], oceanic and atmospheric wave processes driven by saline or thermal effects (12:01 to 22:34)

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.
