  • Reasons For Choice In Stone Fox, By John Reynolds Gardiner

    Reasons for selection Stone Fox, by John Reynolds Gardiner, written in 1980, tells the story of a boy, living with his grandfather, who must find a way to save his grandfather’s farm from the tax collector. Gardiner tells this story of a boy, set in Wyoming, where sled dogs were common and $500 was enough for a farmer to lose his farm. The idea for the story was originally heard by the author in 1974 and the ending was “reported to have happened” (Gardiner 1980). The film was later made into a movie. Stone Fox, a children’s fiction story, is geared toward youth from seven to ten years old and describes a way of life that many children don’t experience any longer. The story is told in such a way, which appears simplistic, but with complex…

  • Advantages Of Computational Fluid Dynamics

    Computational Fluid Dynamics Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the simulation of fluids in engineering systems using modeling such as mathematical physical problem formulation and numerical methods like discretization methods, solver, numerical parameters and grid generation. Computational fluid dynamics is based on the concept of Reynolds averaging of the unsteady Navier-Stokes equation commonly known as (RANS) which are considered by Leishman to be the most adaptable method for…

  • Personal Essay: Rocket Power And Buying My Frosted Flakes

    My father started to come home later each night. First it was eight, then eleven, midnight, and eventually I wouldn’t even see him until the next morning. I would call him to see where he was, and the response I would get was “I have one more customer I need to sell a car to, I’ll be home soon. I love you, baby girl.” And of course I believed him and went about my business. But at that moment I didn’t realize that soon would mean the next day when I’m watching Rocket Power and eating my Frosted…

  • Difference Between Fluid And Newtonian Fluid

    experiment, key drag forces are the skin drag and pressure drag. The skin drag and pressure drag can be accumulated to get the total drag. The drag coefficient is the ratio of the drag force formed in comparison to the product of the dynamic pressure and area. It is a dimensionless quantity. The factors that affect the drag coefficient is the shape of the body, the roughness of the surface, the viscosity of the fluid and compressibility of the object. The viscosity of the fluid introduces the…

  • Golf Balls Lab Report

    moving in the air for a longer period of time. The smooth surface shows that that air is separated from the ball closer to the initial point of contact and leaves a larger vortex behind the ball compared to its smooth counterpart, creating a greater amount of drag. Reynolds Number Flow can generally be qualified by two different classifications of motion. Flow in a fluid (liquid or gas) can be observed as relatively smooth laminar flow where flow properties, such as pressure and velocity tend to…

  • The Three Choices Of Roommates

    Before we even arrive at college, the only thing on most peoples’ minds is finding a roommate. Countless hours are spent on Facebook and other social media talking to and trying to find someone suitable to live with. This is a good idea, however the social media barrier allows for lies to be told. Someone we thought was exactly like us, could in reality be nothing like us. Most of these lies do not come out until we are actually living with this person. Roommates are one of the most important…

  • Vortex-Induced Vibrations Essay

    Fluid dynamics relating to bluff bodies, non-streamlined structures or streamlined bodies at large angles of attack, remains a critical focus of study within the fluid mechanics community. One particular area of interests involves the occurrence of fluid-induced vibrations, or more commonly known as vortex-induced vibrations (VIV’s), exerted on bluff bodies. Due to the production of vortex shedding beyond bluff cross sections, an alternating pressure distribution produces periodic fluctuations…
