The Venturi effect was coined in 1797 by Giovanni Battista Venturi. It’s a phenomena in which a fast-flowing river funnel into a narrow channel through the gap between two peaks. As the air flows through the constriction with increased velocity, the low pressure is a driving force for the surrounding air to be sucked into its tail. The pressure differential and the resulting suction can be experiences when cold and warm air collide. This is an effect that creates problems in a data center.
