Abstract
Drifting Cups on a Meandering Stream (Kyokusui-no-En) is a Poetry Party tha t had its origin in ancient China. and was introduced to Japan passing thro ugh Korea. The flow of the meandering stream was made clear using the flow visualization techniques, surface floating method, PTV and the numerical si mulation. At the same time, the motions of floating cup, the floating speed , rotating speed and the trajectory of the cup were also analyzed by using an originally developed image processing technique. Based on these research es, the model channel was considered. To make this party interesting the ch annel must has the characteristic that the drifting cups take the random pa ss and stagnant at the unexpected place. This model channel is satisfied wi th these conditions and the fluid mechanics consideration is performed on t he both points of the experimental visualization and numerical simulation.
