An American Method of Photographing Flow Patterns

An American Method of Photographing Flow Patterns FLOW visualization work was started at Notre Dame in 1937. Its initial aim was to improve lecture presentation and at the same time to shorten the lecture time given to flow patterns. By 1940 we had developed a semiportable, instant starting, twodimension smoke tunnel. It produced flow patterns almost indistinguishable from the calculated ideal patterns when the plate glass sides of the tunnel were moved within thirtyfive thousandths of an inch of one another and when the speed was kept under five feet per second FIG. 1. This tunnel added nothing to the old HeleShaw technique except that it was more flexible and much easier to use. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

FLOW visualization work was started at Notre Dame in 1937. Its initial aim was to improve lecture presentation and at the same time to shorten the lecture time given to flow patterns. By 1940 we had developed a semiportable, instant starting, twodimension smoke tunnel. It produced flow patterns almost indistinguishable from the calculated ideal patterns when the plate glass sides of the tunnel were moved within thirtyfive thousandths of an inch of one another and when the speed was kept under five feet per second FIG. 1. This tunnel added nothing to the old HeleShaw technique except that it was more flexible and much easier to use.
