Go with the flow

I discover the beautiful fluid motion videos from Yahya Modarres-Sadeghi of the Fluid-Structure Interaction Lab at UAmherst:

These images and videos just show us how much information can be gained from a random signal (the marbled incoming flow) when it is coherent (linear flow) preserve correlation in space and time.

If you enjoy fluid motion pictures, don’t miss out the “An Album of Fluid Motion” by Milton Van Dyke.

This somehow remind me of the mesmerizing simulations of Amanda Ghassaei on digital marbling. She has a incredibly set of cool apps for such simulation (even better than the Physics java apps by Paul Falstad I loved so much!), like the one on Navier-Stokes equation.

The work of our past speaker was recently featured atop of the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco:
