**Fluid Mechanics**Abstract: The three dimensional (3D) flight of a golf ball at taking into account the Magnus effect is studied in the paper. For this purpose it is composed a system of six nonlinear differential equations. To determine the 3D... more

—A submarine is a clandestine platform of watercraft for independent operation beneath water. In order to surpass under water she must obey some ground laws specially Archimedes principle with taking consideration of its flexible and... more

The small-scale structure of grid turbulence is studied primarily using data obtained with a transverse vorticity (ω3) probe for values of the Taylor-microscale Reynolds number Rλ in the range 27–100. The measured spectra of the... more

The entrainment experiments of Kato & Phillips (1969) and Kantha, Phillips & Azad (1977) (hereafter KP and KPA) are analysed to demonstrate a more general and effective scaling of the entrainment observations. The preferred scaling is \[... more

Analytical expressions correlating the volumetric flow rate to the inlet and outlet pressures are derived for the time-independent flow of Newtonian fluids in cylindrically-shaped elastic tubes using a one-dimensional Navier-Stokes flow... more

A conceptual framework for analysing the energetics of density-stratified Boussinesq fluid flows is discussed. The concept of gravitational available potential energy is used to formulate an energy budget in which the evolution of the... more

The dynamics of the air cavity created by vertical water entry of a three-dimensional body is investigated theoretically, computationally and experimentally. The study is focused in the range of relatively low Froude numbers, Fr ≡... more

The stability of an immiscible layer of fluid bounded by two other fluids of different viscosities and migrating through a porous medium is analysed, both theoretically and experimentally. Linear stability analyses for both... more

The multiscale dynamics of a shock–droplet interaction is crucial in understanding the atomisation of droplets due to external airflow. The interaction phenomena are classified into wave dynamics (stage I) and droplet breakup dynamics... more

The stability of the oscillatory Stokes layers is examined using two quasi-static linear theories and an integration of the full time-dependent linearized disturbance equations. The full theory predicts absolute stability within the... more

The objective of this study is the development of an efficient high-order compact scheme for unsteady incompressible viscous flows. The scheme is constructed on a staggered Cartesian grid system in order to avoid spurious oscillations in... more

Coherent structures of turbulent open-channel flow in the wall region of a channel bed were examined quantitatively using experimental data obtained by flow visualization. Successive pictures of flow patterns in two horizontal... more

This is a study of the interactions of solitary waves climbing up a circular island. A series of large-scale laboratory experiments with waves of different incident height-to-depth ratios and different crest lengths is described. Detailed... more

The study of sink flow turbulent boundary layers is of particular relevance to the problem of laminarization. The reason lies in the fact that the acceleration parameter which principally determines when a turbulent boundary layer will... more

The bed entrainment rate in a gravity mass flow (GMF) is uniquely determined by the properties of the bed and the flow. In depth-averaging, however, critical information on the flow variables near the bed is lost and empirical assumptions... more

Magnus effect is a phenomenon where pressure difference is created according to Bernoulli's effect due to induced velocity changes caused by a rotating object in a fluid. Using this concept, the idea of delaying boundary layer separation... more

En este trabajo se presenta el análisis llevado a cabo para determinar la potencia requerida por el corazón para enviar sangre a través de la aorta. El análisis se llevo a cabo desarrollando un modelo análogo al sistema circulatorio... more

Real-time holographic interferometry and shadowgraph visualization are used to study convection in the fluid between two concentric spheres when two distinct buoyancy forces are applied to the fluid. The heated inner sphere has a constant... more

In the Higgs mechanism, mediators of the weak force acquire masses by interacting with the Higgs condensate, leading to a vector boson mass matrix. On the other hand, a rigid body accelerated through an inviscid, incompressible and... more
