1. The Fluid Mechanics Modules
Contact Name: Joseph Cataldo Organization:The Cooper Union

A series of 11 modules has been developed. Each module consists of an outline of the theory of a topic in fluid mechanics that will be covered in lectures, an illustrated design problem, historical and cultural notes, a design homework example, a series of demonstrations and references. Each module is self-contained and takes approximately one to three weeks to cover. One of the ways these modules are unique is that the material is presented by the use of design problems, design homework examples, and design projects. These modules are being used in the Design Studio Classroom.

A series of fluid mechanics videos (29 videos) were integrated into a course in fluid mechanics. Each video demonstration runs an average of 3 to 4 minutes. There are an average of one and a half demonstrations for each of the 11 basic topics covered in the fluid mechanics course. These video demonstrations are being used in a required course in fluid mechanics at the Cooper Union.

The Video clips can be obtained from these two companies
