Questions in fluid mechanics: opportunities and challenges of flow experiments in helium

Abstract

Helium has been used in place of air and water for flow research, model testing and turbulence experiments at high Reynolds numbers. Although it offers advantage features however not much attention was directed to these features because of three specific reasons discussed in the paper. With the advent of developments helium facilities were recognized. This significant-SSCL, was put up by DOE. The details of the program are discussed. Much work has been conducted by the turbulence community directed towards reaching high Reynolds numbers. In connection to the program, comments on the policy statement of numerical accuracy were integrated. These comments were intended for CFD problems and how to do with them.
