The phenomenon of turbulence is quite common, apparent in the flow of air in our atmosphere, or the rise of smoke from a cigarette. Yet, a mathematical description of turbulence has continued to escape scientists, despite having been studied for hundreds of years.
MIT researchers say they found ionic wind thrusters may be a more efficient source of propulsion than conventional jet engines.
Axiam’s New Approach to Turbine Engine Core Straight-build Delivers Annual Fuel Savings up to $1.0 Million per Widebody (PRWEB) March 28, 2013 Axiam,
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...
