Air-coupled impact-echo delamination detection in concrete using spheres of ice for excitation, 2013

Abstract: The aims of this paper are to demonstrate that ice can be used as a suitable impactor to excite the acoustic modes in concrete associated with delaminations and to compare ice sphere impacts with traditional steel ball impacts. Simultaneous acoustic recordings and high-speed photography of representative low-velocity impacts with parametric analysis [...]

Cavitation of a submerged jet, 2013

Abstract: A cavitation cloud forms when a high-pressure water jet is submerged in a tank of quiescent water. The water jet is formed as high-pressure nitrogen forces a fixed-volume column of water through a nozzle. The diameter and exit velocity of the water jet affect the behavior and geometry of the resulting [...]

Determining 3D flow fields via multi-camera light field imaging, 2013

Abstract: In the field of fluid mechanics, the resolution of computational schemes has outpaced experimental methods and widened the gap between predicted and observed phenomena in fluid flows. Thus, a need exists for an accessible method capable of resolving three-dimensional (3D) data sets for a range of problems. We present a novel [...]

Physics of elastic spheres skipping on water, 2013

Abstract: It is well known that one can skip a stone across the wa- ter surface, but less well known that a ball can also be skipped on water. The Waboba?R is an elastic ball used in a game of aquatic keep away in which players pass the ball by skipping it [...]
