Holographically Recorded Photopolymer Diffractive Optical Element For Holographic And Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry, Sridhar Guntaka, Vincent Toal, Suzanne Martin

Articles

A diffractive optical element is described that can be used to implement a self-aligning electronic speckle apttern interferometer and holographic interferometer requiring only a laser source and a camera in the optical set-up.


Flow Patterns In A Two-Roll Mill, Christopher Hills Jan 2002

Flow Patterns In A Two-Roll Mill, Christopher Hills

Articles

The two-dimensional flow of a Newtonian fluid in a rectangular box that contains two disjoint, independently-rotating, circular boundaries is studied. The flow field for this two-roll mill is determined numerically using a finite-difference scheme over a Cartesian grid with variable horizontal and vertical spacing to accommodate satisfactorily the circular boundaries. To make the streamfunction numerically determinate we insist that the pressure field is everywhere single-valued. The physical character, streamline topology and transitions of the flow are discussed for a range of geometries, rotation rates and Reynolds numbers in the underlying seven-parameter space. An account of a preliminary experimental study of ...
