Video Update for “Pump performance curves”

In the initial “Pump performance curves ” post I had forgotten who I had learned it from. It turns out to have been John Cimbala and Laura Pauley from Penn State. They have kindly passed on the videos they showed at the 2007  APS-DFD meeting in Salt Lake City. The full videos are linked here, here, and here. GIFS are below. It is so simple but there is so much in it. This is one of my favorite labs we do now.
