  • Bore Soliton Splash with Zweers & Thornton Sept. 2010 (speech):
  • Two solitons are generated by opening sluice gate; front one breaks into a bore, and crashes at end into linearly converging closed narrows.
  • Bore reflects, draws a trough so unbroken 2nd soliton crashes: yields 3-4m vertical jet ...
  • but only when water levels in canal & sluice gate are finely tuned; 41 vs. 90cm.
  • Construction: thanks to Buitink & crew; Barry Janssen & crew (Dusseldorp); & Ward Erhart (Event Engineers).
  • Van Groesen, Geurts, & Polderman asked 1 soliton: we 3 made soliton splash.
  • Fluid Fascinations Jan. 2010:
    • Art and Science show (17-01-2010) for general public with artist Valerie Zwart, with live experiment made with designer/artist Zweers.
    • This public art and science show is available on request.
    • Inspired by fluid phenomena slides of late Howell Peregrine; see also:
      - commemoration of Howell Peregrine, J. Eng. Mech.
      - variational water wave model, Cotter & B. "Peregrine" issue JEM.
    • Many thanks to Prof. Rich Kerswell (Bristol) and Fam. Peregrine for Howell's fluid dynamics' slides.
