The visualization of fluid circulation has performed a tremendous function within the improvement of fluid dynamics and its purposes, from the evolution of flight to monitoring climate, and knowing the stream of blood. The Fluid Dynamics department of the yankee actual Society sponsors an annual pageant for impressive pictures of fluid circulate. This quantity features a collection of winners from 1985 to the current. every one photograph is followed via a few explanatory textual content, making the amount a massive acquisition for a person taken with fluid circulation examine.

J. F. van Heijst and J. B. Flór University of Utrecht, The Netherlands The photographs illustrate experiments that have been performed on the collapse of a three-dimensional turbulent patch in a linearly stratified fluid. The turbulence was generated by horizontal injection of a small volume of fluid during a short time interval.
