Latest Turbulence Stories
Travel season is just around the corner for a lot of kids.
New research indicates that keeping your seatbelt fastened may become a necessary requirement for those crossing the Atlantic in the coming decades, as turbulence increases and flights get bumpier thanks to climate change.
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.
By understanding the nature of the gases, we can learn something about how small particles interact with each other, coagulate to become larger particles and then ultimately form planets
DietsAndFitnessGuides.com releases a review of Craig Ballantyne's Turbulence Training system which promises users a proven method for burning fat and gaining muscle with time efficient home
Oceanographers from the U.S. Navy are using ocean wave research to help improve forecasts.
One of Hollywoodâ€™s most terrifying new films, Tape 407, features footage that feels too real for reality and too disturbing for fiction.
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...
