Fundamental Principles of Flows (Hunter Rouse)

Basic concepts and physical relationships of fluid motions - (0:00 to 10:40)
Flow patterns – velocity vectors, streamlines, pathlines, streaklines –, local and convective acceleration, relative motion, continuity relationship, vorticity, circulation, rotational and irrotational flow, flow net
Flow dynamics - (10:42 to 22:15)
Flow acceleration and pressure-velocity relationship for non-uniform states of motion, dynamic and static pressure, principle for simple instruments for the measurement of velocity, pressure and rate of flow, separation, cavitation, integration of the continuity, momentum, and energy equation, propulsion

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.
