An Experimental Study of Unsteady Flows Generated in Kojima Lake

Numaguchi Satoshi
Abstract
The global positioning system (GPS) is utilized for analysis of flows in the water environment. A float equipped with a GPS unit is designed to drift on the surface of the water. Its driving force is the fluid resistance exerted on a pair of rectangular plates. While it travels over the surface, the GPS unit evaluates its position every second, and spatiotemporal data that specify its motion are transmitted to be recorded. Results of experiments conducted to study unsteady flows generated in Kojima Lake are introduced.
