A HISTORY OF FLOW VISUALIZATION: CHRONOLOGY

K. C. Cheng
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta Edmonton, Canada

RESUMO

Flow visualizationn experiments contributed greatly to the conceptual developments of fluid mechanics in the last 500 years. We present a brief survey on the history of flow visualization based mainly on the pioneering works of Leonardo, Mach, Reynolds, Prandtl, von Kármán, and Taylor. The observation and investigation of fluid flow by visualization methods was started in modern scientific form by Leonardo around 1500. Reynolds and Prandtl belong to the first group of his followers. Recent history also shows that the use of flow visualization can play a substantial role in improving the physical understanding of complicated transition and turbulent phenomena.
