Turbulent gravitational convection from maintained and instantaneous sources
Theories of convection from maintained and instantaneous sources of buoyancy are developed, using methods which are applicable to stratified body fluids with any variation of density with height;Expand

  • 25 August 1953
When a soluble substance is introduced into a fluid flowing slowly through a small-bore tube it spreads out under the combined action of molecular diffusion and the variation of velocity over theExpand

The penetration of a fluid into a porous medium or Hele-Shaw cell containing a more viscous liquid
When a viscous fluid filling the voids in a porous medium is driven forwards by the pressure of another driving fluid, the interface between them is liable to be unstable if the driving fluid is theExpand

The formation of emulsions in definable fields of flow
The physical and chemical condition of emulsions of two fluids which do not mix has been the subject of many studies, but very little seems to be known about the mechanics of the stirring processesExpand

  • 22 March 1950
It is shown that, when two superposed fluids of different densities are accelerated in a direction perpendicular to their interface, this surface is stable or unstable according to whether theExpand

  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London…
  • 28 July 1964
The disintegration of drops in strong electric fields is believed to play an important part in the formation of thunderstorms, at least in those parts of them where no ice crystals are present.Expand

The Viscosity of a Fluid Containing Small Drops of Another Fluid
The viscosity of a fluid in which small solid spheres are suspended has been studied by Einstein as a problem in theoretical hydrodynamics. Einstein’s paper gave rise to many experimental researchesExpand

  • 22 November 1951
Large objects which propel themselves in air or water make use of inertia in the surrounding fluid. The propulsive organ pushes the fluid backwards, while the resistance of the body gives the fluid aExpand
