The Froude Number helps us to define one of the most essential characteristics of flow. How do concepts developed by a naval architect apply to static structures? Join us for this critical introduction of Froude and his famous number. We’ll take the Froude Number back to First Principles, find out how subcritical and supercritical flow relate to the Mach Number through Newton’s method, and present the application of the Froude Number in hydraulic design.

This webinar will have important background information for our H&H training series which will kick-off in May 2022 with another free webinar From Courant to Saint Venant.
