View Resource Aerodynamics for Students

This Web site serves as an online aerodynamics textbook for college students. Offered by the department of Aerospace, Mechanical, and Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Sydney, the material is divided into several main categories. These include fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, gasdynamics, aircraft performance, and propulsion. Each of these sections has many specific topics that are...

View Resource Physics of Sailing

This Topic in Depth explores the Web's offerings on the physics of sailing. The first site by Joe Wolfe of the School of Physics at the University of New South Wales is entitled The Physics of Sailing (1). Here, visitors will learn how boats can sail upwind, how they sail faster than the wind, and why large boats never sail directly with the wind. The one-page site offers simple descriptions, good...

View Resource Development of Polymer-Based Artificial Haircell Using Surface Micromachining and 3D Assembly

Despite the likely first impressions created by the title, this paper does not hold the cure to balding. It does, however, describe a remarkable kind of sensor that measures fluid flow. Since "insects and fish use clusters of hair cells to monitor air or water flow," researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign developed an artificial haircell that behaves in a similar way. The...

View Resource CalTech Chemical Engineering: Fluid Mechanics

This website describes a research project focused on fluid mechanics and transport processes, with an emphasis on "problems at the interface between continuum mechanics and statistical mechanics." The John F. Brady research group uses its own computational method known as Stokesian Dynamics to study complex fluids, and develop and solve macroscopic equations to describe transport in heterogeneous...
