Helicopters

We enjoyed making these last weekend. I have tried flying fish with my children before now, which are great fun. Just make a slit in the end portion of a strip of paper, and one on the other end but on the other side. 200 more words

NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF TURBULENT FLOW USING RANS MODELING APPROACH

In this paper, the air turbulent flow in coaxial jet burner is investigated numerically using the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) modeling approach. 3D computational fluid dynamics code (CFD) has been used and the gas phase equations are solved using the finite volume method. 78 more words
