A generalized model for mapping performance characteristics (pressure, power, and total efficiency) of a double-discharge centrifugal fan is presented. The model requires limited geometrical knowledge and may be applied as a first-order design tool for concept evaluation and trade-off studies.

Observed behaviors of the circular hydraulic jump (CHJ) in a microgravity test environment as tested aboard NASA's C-9 Microgravity Research Aircraft in 2006 & 2007. These results contradict previous findings by proving that the diameter of the CHJ increases in microgravity relative to it’s diameter in hypergravity.
