Abstract : Nine methods for regulating fluid flow are presented. They are designated as (1) original, (2) mechanical, (3) orificial, (4) frictional, (5) recirculational, (6) oscillational, (7) accelerational, (8) transitional, and (9) magnetical. Each method is explained together with its flow noise characteristics. Pertinent experimental studies of devices demonstrating several of the methods are included in the appendixes. (Author)
