Video Clips and Movies, M E 320
This web page contains some short video clips that may be shown in class, or can be watched at your leisure.
There are also vidoes available on the DVD that comes with the book - you are encouraged to watch all of them.
National Committee for Fluid Mechanics Films - Old but fascinating videos (most are around 30 or 40 minutes in length). [Note: The website has both youtube and RealPlayer video formats; the RealPlayer videos are generally of better quality than the youtube videos.]
- Quicktime movie from NOAA showing a CFD simulation of the propagation of the devastating tsunami wave that hit Asia
in December of 2004. The waves travel at around 500 miles per hour!
- Video clip from ARL-Penn State showing a CFD simulation of supercavitation on a torpedo-type underwater vehicle. The cavitation in this case is helpful because it reduces drag.
