Taylor-Couette Flow Apparatus Formation at Bethel University

At Bethel University, student Jake Stein worked to build three Taylor-Couette flow apparatuses for their Physics department. The creation of these apparatuses required research and prototyping to be done beforehand in order to best understand the math and science behind these physical devices. After the Taylor-Couette apparatuses have been assembled, future fluid mechanics students and researchers alike can use these devices to study the flow of viscous fluids at Bethel University.

This work was motivated by lessons learned at a 2018 Advanced Laboratory Physics Association (ALPhA) immersion workshop at Willamette University (https://www.advlab.org/Imm2018Willamette_TaylorCouette)
