Introduction to the Study of Fluid Motion (Hunter Rouse)

Fluid flows in nature: Examples of fluid flows phenomena in nature (0:00 to 6:38); Fluid mechanics terminology: Fundamental fluid dimensions, specific fluid properties – inertia, gravitational attraction, viscosity, elasticity – and specific quantities – velocity, acceleration, mass, force, pressure (6:39 to 15:30); Experimental fluid dynamics: Role of experiments, modeling similitude, characteristics non-dimensional numbers – Eu, Fr, Re, Ma (15:32 to 23:40)

Additional notes
The Fluids Laboratory is an integrated learning environment developed by IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineeringfor the College of Engineering of The University of Iowa.

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.
