I have read a few of his books, I have a few because his pictures he publishes are great tools to help understand the port as well. Any book you see good port pictures in LOOK!!
On the exit side of the cooler I could see the same wave reflections we speak of prior. The flow in a cooler is not uniform so its more or less a reservoir IMO. Where the next wave would take place would be from the exit CSA and plenum entrance CSA which then dumps into another reservoir. However again, we still need the initiation phenomenon that is what I am trying to think of if its just flow demand changes or something else because we don't have a valve to open or close.
I am not sure how up on mathematics you are, I am still trying to teach myself calculus as I go here, but Potto.org has free fluid mechanics and gas dynamics books if you really want to get deep into flow. Look into Gordon P Blair and the book Scientific Design of Exhaust and Intake Systems from Smith & Morrison, that book goes through both systems and explains numerous things. Everything we are trying to find is easier to find once the basics of flow are known by any one person male or female.
The difference we have between our dry flow system is its above atmosphere and we dont have wet flow PERIOD, some have said that the angles the are at the valve change however others have disagreed and said flow is flow just a difference of density and temperature level. Remember whatever you hear or read THERE IS NO SECRET. I always check multiple sources to verify or mark as BS too.
With what we are speaking of here, the 'delivery' system I don't think we have as much complexity but to establish the origin of the wave and move further to tune the efficiency higher in quality.
