Generalized constructal law shows that evolution doesn’t apply only to biological things

A law of physics that explains why larger animals live longer and travel further can be extended to the simplest forms of mass migration on the planet – like rolling stones and turbulent eddies in water and air currents, according to new research from Duke University. “The finding demonstrates that evolution doesn’t apply only to […]

Turbulent 73 Years Over For Physicists

Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign believe they can now explain a phenomenon that has eluded explanation for over 70 years. Fluid turbulence, or more specifically, understanding and predicting the behavior of fluid friction, has baffled physicists for over 70 years. Fluid friction is a complicated business. Back in 1933, Johann Nikuradse measured […]
