Two dimensional soap membrane at the LIGO Livingston Science and Education Center. October 18, 2017. What a fun demonstration! You raise a rod that is immersed in soap and glycerin and it forms a nice sheet. The sheet is quite flexible and surface waves are gently coaxed into existence with each small breath. The flow in the membrane is turbulent and shows up in many colors due to light interfering with itself. The spectral colors prove that the thickness of the film is of the same order as the wavelength of light, hundreds of nanometers, or a hundred-thousandth of a centimeter. Watch until the end for a spectacular failure of the membrane! #LIGO#Livingston#LaserInterferometerGravitationalWaveObervatory#Soap#SoapMembrane#SurfaceWaves#TurbulentFlow#FluidDynamics#Bubbles#Interference#WaveNatureOfLight
that feeling when you finally submit your fluid dynamics midterm code 😩🙌🏼 mostly dealing with applications of Bernoulli's principle and conceptualizing how assumptions about flow affect your calculations. Waterfalls, space rockets, frisbees, and more. Question: is snow a fluid? #MATLAB#code#nerdy#fluiddynamics
The HYT H0 silver boasts several innovations in microfluid technologies. The bellow1st pushing the blue liquid forward and then the second below pushing the clear fluid like a retrograde complication out of liquids. The bellows themselves a major invention as well, weaving gold and three other metals into a flexible and precise fluid engine.
This is a CFD model of our proposed cyclone separator. This component of the roaster separates the Coffee chaff from the hot gas stream. It does this by establishing a cyclone within the vessel. The plot on the left shows the velocity in the device. The calculations governing cyclonic airflow are complicated and specialist engineering software is used to create the model. Luckily there are some best practice guides and textbooks out there to help, but the proof in the pudding is in the eating, so guess we’ll just have to build it and see if the model is valid.
3D printing speech by way of capturing the changes of air movement while saying (or singing). This was a submission to a project the Fluid Dynamics division of #APSphysics initiated: http://bit.ly/adskmflow422
Smart packaging can pave the way for automation in our daily lives - from reminders to take medicine to reordering consumer goods automatically, see how #water_io is changing caps in this @plasticsnews article: http://bit.ly/adskmflow420
Sometimes, your #Moldflow results may not match to actual molding of your part - what then? Here's a great AU presentation that #WestPharma describes some case studies of how they work through this: http://bit.ly/adskmflow417
The #ShortSleeveClub summarized how simulation plays key with engineering in today's world: "Rather than designing a part and then testing whether it will work, [FEA and shape generation] tools allow for simulation before or alongside design." http://bit.ly/adskmflow416
