Flow Visualization Module in ME320 Fluid Flow

media
In my ME320 course, students are required to submit videos about a flow problem that they are interested in. In this video, they will show their experiments and try to explain the observations using those equations that we introduced in class. But this module is designed mostly to show how cool the fluid flow can be and hopefully inspire and motivate them to pursue careers in related areas.
