We present a re-examination of the gradually varied flow problem for open channels. A close study of the classical study by Bresse (1860) [1] and Bakhmeteff (1912) [2] and later Chow (1955) [4] has shown that their standard computations contain some errors. The objective is to clarify this error in open channel hydrodynamics and thereby assist engineers and modelers engaged in this area of research.

Natural convection flow from an isothermal sphere immersed in a viscous incompressible fluid in the presence of species concentration and chemical reaction has been investigated. The governing boundary layer equations are transformed into a non-dimensional form and the resulting nonlinear system of partial differential equations are reduced to local non-similarity boundary layer equations, which are solved numerically by very efficient implicit finite difference method together with Keller box scheme. Numerical results are presented by velocity, temperature and species concentration profiles of the fluid as well as the local skin-friction coefficients, local heat transfer rate and the local species concentration transfer rate for a wide range of chemical reaction parameter γ (= 0.0; 0.5; 1.0; 2.0; 4.0), buoyancy parameter w (= 0.0; 0.2; 0.6; 1.0), Schmidt number Sc (= 0.7; 10.0; 50.0; 100.0) and Prandtl number Pr (= 0.7; 7.0).

A problem of sound radiation by a bimorphic piezoceramic disk submerged in fluid and being excited by a harmonic in time electric voltage is solved within the scope of the theory of thin bimorphic piezoplates and using the method of partial domains. The cases are considered when the bimorphic disk is placed inside an infinite baffle (acoustically soft or hard). The disk's contour is implied to be free or simply supported. A numerical analysis of radiated power and directivity pattern for acoustical system under consideration is conducted. As a result, it is shown that, contrary to a widespread opinion, the free disk in the soft baffle is an efficient sound source.

A two-dimensional Stokes flow due to a periodic motion of a circular and rectilinear boundary in a semicircle is considered. An exact analytical solution for a description of a velocity field is given. Peculiarities of the velocity field and their influence on the motion of a surrounding passive fluid in the semicircle are also studied. Poincare section, trajectories of motion of passive fluid particles, the largest Lyapunov exponent are calculated and analyzed for various regimes and values of boundary velocities, that allow determining the zones of both intensive (chaotic) and weak (regular) mixing of the above regions of fluid flow in the semicircle.

The regime hysteresis of steady flow of liquid, which fills partially a steady-state rotating, horizontal cylinder is considered. The effect consists in exceeding the value of angular velocity of the cylinder in transition from circulating flow to wall layer flow, under the cylinder speed up over a value of its velocity in its reverse transition during deceleration. The hysteresis shows up when the Reynolds numbers are large, it is not observed when the numbers are small and it gains in strength when the degree of cylinder's filling with liquid increases. It is shown that the obtained analytical steady-state conditions of the wall layer are in agreement with experimental data for the case of large values of the Reynolds numbers, when disturbance of free surface arises, and they are not in agreement for the case of small values of the numbers, when circulating secondary flow springs up as a roller. On the basis of experimental data with allowance for accepted similarity criteria the universal diagrams are plotted which can be used in more exact calculations of the change boundary of regimes, are plotted.

The paper present results of an analysis of acoustic signals generated by immersed axisymmetric fluid jets that create local toroidal cavitation regions tending to collapse periodically. A transcendental dispersion equation has been derived, which describes this process, and an analytical relationship has been established which shows how the frequency of the generated vibrations depends on parameters of an emitting system. Coefficients have been introduced and evaluated that define a fraction of the fluid's flow rate spent for developing the cavitation region, a pressure change rate inside it, and a ratio of its volume to the volume cut off by the jet. Plots of experimental and theoretical relationships are presented, that describe the frequency of vibrations vs. parameters of the system in question.

Violation of the superposition principle when allowing for moving boundaries, even in the case of a linear wave equation, is shown on an example of analytical solution of the initial-boundary problem on acoustic wave radiation by a moving plane piston. The developed solution for the piston motion, represented as a superposition of low-amplitude oscillations upon the constant velocity, describes the well-known Doppler effect. All results are obtained on the basis of the non-linear time transformation technique.

Peculiarities of a sonocapillary effect in precavitational regime are investigated. It is shown that in this regime the small meniscus shift deep into the capillary is caused by the strong attenuation of ultrasonic field on the capillary inlet. The attenuation coefficient value has been determined experimentally. It is shown that a pulsating bubble, forming on the capillary end, can concentrate the ultrasonic wave energy and direct it into the capillary canal. In this case the capillary filling depth increases more than by one-two orders. It is shown that the stable liquid lifting in the capillary is possible in the absence of cavitation.

A new class of two-dimensional non-stationary flows has been developed for a viscous fluid with strong discontinuities. Approximate Bubnov-Galerkin method reduces the problem to the analysis of evolutional properties of a nonlinear dynamic system with two essential degrees of freedom. A qualitative research has been performed for viscous Newtonian fluid and both for positive and for alternating turbulent viscosities.
