understanding turbulence

 

 

Some years ago, I was watching a stream, and there was an area where the flow went from laminar to turbulent.

refineries

 

Current refineries use catalytic reformers, which produce benzene and other aromatics. Benzene is bad, and when burned in car engines, the other aromatics produce particulate pollution.

Here is an alternative process.

stop signs

 

Four-way stops are common, but they seem inefficient. Maybe they can be improved by people just following different rules.

sunscreen

 

UV light can cause damage when molecules in cells absorb it by breaking into free radicals. Sunscreens block that UV light, but current sunscreens usually use molecules that absorb it by breaking into free radicals.

This is a blog.

 

I decided to do some blogging.

 

I suppose I should start off with something that has popular appeal. But my specialty is technical design, and most people only appreciate good technical design after a project is successful. Big projects are expensive, so that leaves small programming projects.

 

Video games are, by definition, programs with popular appeal, but if people somehow found certain 1D arrays of numbers interesting without really understanding why, making those might be less work.

 

If there really was something so convenient, there would probably be smart people who spent their lives working on that in groups, and it's a bit unfair for me to have to compete with that by myself with a side project, but that's probably even more true of video games.

Well, we'll see...
