AirPro Fan and Blower Co. has added a new backward curved fan to its line of premium industrial fans.
Turbulence is all around us—in the patterns that natural gas makes as it swirls through a transcontinental pipeline or in the drag that occurs as a plane soars through the sky.
Verantis Environmental Solutions Group is a leading global solutions provider of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) industrial fans. Middleburg Hts, OH (PRWEB)
Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters by NK releases highly anticipated ballistics weather meter in partnership with Applied Ballistics. Boothwyn, PA (PRWEB)
Kestrelmeters.com, an official retailer for Kestrel Pocket Weather Meters, is now offering the revolutionary line of applied ballistics weather meters, named the Kestrel 4500NV, for long-range
As the world's best athletes descend on London today to take part in the Olympic Anniversary Games, a group of researchers from Mexico has provided an insight into the physics of one of the greatest athletic performances of all time.
A superfluid moves like a completely frictionless liquid, seemingly able to propel itself without any hindrance from gravity or surface tension.
The boomerang is a flying tool, made of wood or carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, with a curved shape that is often used as a weapon or for sport. They have also been made of bones and come in many different shapes and sizes depending on their geographic or tribal origins and their intended function. The most commonly recognizable type is the returning boomerang which travels in an elliptical path and returns to its point of origin. The returning boomerang has lopsided wings in order to create...
A Vortex (plural: vortices) is a spinning, often turbulent, mass of flowing fluid. Any spiral movement with a closed streamline is considered vortex flow. The speed and rate of rotation of a vortex is always greatest at the center, with progressively decreasing speed away from the center. The fluid pressure is lowest in the center of the vortex, and rises further from the center (Bernoulli's Principle). The core of a vortex is sometimes visible due to a plume of water vapor caused by...
Turbulence (or turbulent flow) is characterized by chaotic, random property changes. Turbulence occurs with low momentum diffusion (spreading of atmospheric properties), high momentum convection (vertical transference of atmospheric properties), and rapid variation of pressure and velocity in both space and time. A flow that is not turbulent is known as laminar flow. A vortex moving at low speeds will most likely cause laminar flow, and as speeds increase a transition is made to turbulent...
