Project SeaCAMEL – Module 5 – Background Info – Turbulent Fluff Body

Turbulent Fluff Body Video: Show complexity of fluid flow over coral reef; from Multimedia Fluid Mechanics project.

Turbulent Fluff Body Video from the Multimedia Fluid Mechanics project of how a roughness element can make eddies which help transport fluid at right angles to the substrate. The graph shows a measurement of the shear stress (force/area) generated by the turbulence from the roughness element. Imagine how complex the flow over a real coral reef must look like!
