Rouse Educational Films
Former IIHR Director Hunter Rouse conceived, wrote, directed, and narrated this series of five education films on fluid mechanics, which were produced at IIHR in the early 1960s. The series has been continuously in use around the world to educate students on introductory concepts; fundamental principles; gravitational effects; laminar and turbulent flow; and lift, draft, and compressibility. The series was groundbreaking in many ways—including the use of color throughout and the quick pace of the presentation. The films are available to view here or on the University of Iowa’s YouTube channel.
