“Imagine if the window were made of ants…”

Ig Nobel Prize winner David Hu researches many questions that involve biology AND mathematics AND physics. And often, fluid dynamics. In this video, he confides, concisely, some of the biophysical ways that ants survive perilous, quickly-changing physical conditions: The 2015 Ig Nobel Prize for physics was awarded to Patricia Yang [USA and TAIWAN], David Hu [USA and TAIWAN], and […]

Dog lapping in the matrix

A fluid dynamics approach to gaining understanding (adding to what’s known) of the way liquids are reliably transferred into the mouths of dogs and cats: “Dog lapping in the matrix,” presented at the 67th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics (November 23, 2014 — November 25, 2014), by Sean Gart (Virginia Tech) Jake Socha […]
