Form Drag, Lift, and Propulsion (Hunter Rouse)

Drag force: Boundary layer separation (onset, control, examples), variation of the pressure distribution and drag force with body form, flow patterns, drag coefficient - (0:00 to 8:48); Flow circulation: Definition, lift force, cross thrust, forced vibration, structural failures - (8:50 to 13:30); Lift force and lifting vanes: Lift coefficient, lift force, stall, optimum drag/lift force ratio - (13:31 to 16:27); Propulsion: Thrust, propellers, axial-flow machinery, fluid couplings, torque converters - (16:28 to 22:47)

Additional notes

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.
