The Effects of Water Hammer And Pulsations
Explanation of water hammer and pulsation inclusive the formula used to calculate the pressure increase.
Convection in a box.
Experiments with smoke inside a plexiglass box challenge convectional wisdom. Smoke can unexpectedly act heavier than air and then spontaneously reverse.
Transforming Ellipsodial Into Translatory Motion
A report in pdf format describes how ellipsoidal water wave motion can be transformed into translatory motion to exchange polluted water in an almost closed sea bay.
An antibubble is a ball of liquid surrounded by a thin film of air. Pictures, documentation and links.
Fluid Salients in Air, Water, and Solids
Site discusses fluid salients as a cause for ocean wave formation, cloud formation and geologic structure formation. Several small physical models of salients are also discussed.
