Our problem is to study the relationship between the fluid motion and the cooling rate for a rotating partially filled cylinder.  Our experiment is to rotate the fluid filled cylinder about a vertical rotational axis and about a horizontal rotational axis.  The successful interpretation of fluid flow patterns is an important tool used to investigate and understand the physics of fluid motion and turbulence. Our research area is the physics of rotating fluids employing flow visualization techniques.  HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A FLUID SPIN SIDEWAYS?  Want to see them go to spinning fluids movies and pictures.
