The Bernoulli principle is based on the law of conservation of energy, which asserts that in any system energy can neither be created, nor destroyed; however, energy can be transformed.
Here we propose a novel way to manage project cash flow dynamics using the Bernoulli principle of fluid dynamics.
The result was the VA Comp--so named because of its Venturi-port utilization of the Bernoulli Principle (a principle that explains why, for example, you can adjust the nozzle on your garden hose to send the same stream of water as a jet or a slow trickle without changing the pressure of your household pump).
It uses the Bernoulli principle, which states that air produces "lift" when it moves faster above a surface than below it.
