Rotating Tank Demonstrations

We have developed a rotating tank setup that can be incorporated into various AOS undergraduate and graduate courses to illustrate fundamental principles of rotating fluid dynamics, which often prove challenging when students first encounter them. This development was led by Jordyn Moscoso, under the guidance of Andrew Stewart and Gang Chen, and was supported by a UCLA CAT (formerly OID) grant during the 2018-2019 academic year. Some images of the tank in action are included below.


If you are interested in using the tank for teaching purposes then please contact us for further information.
