By Minoru Nagai
This is often the English version of a eastern ebook entitled "Learning Fluid Dynamics from Dolphins". The name derives from the truth that "dolphins swim too speedy to be defined scientifically". the 1st individual to obviously describe this phenomenon was once the English biologist Sir James grey and this secret is understood between physicists and experts in marine engineering as "Gray's paradox" or just because the "mystery of dolphins". as well as dolphins, tuna, marlin and a few different fish also are well-known for swimming at terribly excessive speeds. Treating either dolphins and fish jointly within the similar name is tough simply because either animals have very diverse taxonomy - dolphins belonging to oceanic mammals, and tuna and marlin belonging to teleostei fish. This e-book makes use of dolphins as symbolic animals that practice high-speed swimming. The booklet is principally for readers who're attracted to expertise and technology and who wish to concentrate on technological occupations. It introduces the constructing historical past of fluid dynamics after which outlines the study historical past and the popularity of Gray's paradox. eventually, Minoru Nagai's examine, via nearly 3 a long time, is reviewed.
