Modeling structures that trap air under water and could one day lead to more energy-efficient ships described in the journal 'Physics of Fluids' From the sleek hulls of racing yachts to Michael Phelps' shaved legs, most objects that move through the water quickly are also smooth. But researchers from UCLA have found that bumpiness can sometimes be better. "A properly designed rough surface, contrary to our intuition, can reduce skin-friction drag," said John Kim, a professor in the...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists at New York University announced Wednesday that they have built a prototype of the world’s first jellyfish drone. The tiny, electrically powered machine weighs in at just 2.1 grams and can hover in a stable manner without the use of sensors, recover from disturbances and maneuver in ways resembling a flying jellyfish, the researchers said. Previous designs for so-called flapping wing aircraft, or ornithopters, have...

EVERETT, Wash., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE:BA) announced today that high-speed wind tunnel tests have started for the Boeing 777X. Testing began last week at Boeing's Transonic Wind Tunnel in Seattle. Last month, engineers started wind tunnel tests at QinetiQ's facility in Farnborough, U.K., where testing of the low-speed performance of the airplane continues. "This is another important step forward in the development of the 777X," said Terry Beezhold, vice...

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...
