Considering the streamline tube theory and the Bernoulli effect, we can estimate that the 3D spectrum of flow generated around and outside of a classical stern hull having practiced transversal corrugated stern sections can be substantially improved by an architectural optimization in the sense of axial velocities from a propulsion propeller immediate front plane uniformization--figure 2.
The Bernoulli effect also explains how a spin bowler can curve the ball in cricket, or a tennis player can make a ball dip and then kick up after a serve.
stolonifera would be able to exploit passive flow not only due to dynamic pressure, but also because of the Bernoulli effect or viscous entrainment.
A lot of people claim the Bernoulli Effect is not there, that the motion is just due to particles bouncing off the sail.
Some scientists have claimed it's the Bernoulli effect: as water, air, and other fluids accelerate (speed up), surrounding air pressure drops, creating lift (upward force).
The prevailing winds which generally come somewhat from the northwest swirl about this hilly mount, giving rise to what is called in fluid mechanics as the Bernoulli effect. This effect operates on the same principal as when one blows into a soda straw at a cylindrical glass tumbler and the air stream moves an object otherwise shielded at the other side of the glass.
