Flowing Alpine Water That Appears Completely Frozen

Alpine Water

While filming in the central Alps valley of Val Camonica, Italian photographer Dario Bonzi recorded this remarkable footage of mountain water flowing out of a pipe that appeared to be completely frozen. Despite the illusion, Bonzi explained several times that the water was indeed not frozen by placing his hands into directly the stream. This unbelievable phenomenon is produced by streamline (laminar) flow, which states that when low-velocity liquid flows in parallel layers without lateral mixing or other interruptions, its presentation is very orderly and very still.

(translated) Immobile. It looks like ice but it’s flowing water! This is a rather rare fluid dynamic condition called STATIONARY LAMINAR FLOW, it is not a special effect, it is real.

IMMOBILE!! Sembra ghiaccio ma è acqua che scorre! Si tratta di una condizione fluidodinamica piuttosto rara chiamata FLUSSO LAMINARE STAZIONARIO, non è un effetto ottico ma è reale #scienza #natura #science #sciences #mountain #water #static #staticflow #flussostazionario #terrefredde #bestofthesay #incredible #fantastic #naturelovers #naturepic #instadaily #instalike #exploration #inlombardia #sciencejokes #awesome #awesome_earth #nature_perfection #aprica #ig_sondrio #fisica #physics #explore #explorer #travel This content is exclusively managed by Caters News.
