                  Film Analysis The beginning of my research began with filtration analysis of our existing models. Dr. Sanderson’s lab works with four models: asymmetrical, symmetrical, conical, and cylindrical. We place these models facing laminar flow and film dye patterns. We observed interesting fluid behaviors in our models […]

Fish Model Analysis

Effective filtration is a commonly overlooked phenomenon in our everyday lives and in industry. But filtration by human standards has been limited by an obvious physical barrier: clogging. When we observe filter feeding, namely in ram-feeding fish, we observe a filtration system that has been perfected via evolution. A reliance on filtration as a means of […]
