Fluids Round-up - 9 June 2013
It’s time for some more fluidsy fun around the Internet! Here are some fun links I’ve come across since our last round-up.
- NPR reviews how dolphins and others play with vortex rings.
- Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory/UC Berkeley offer some insight into simulating bubbles popping. (Hint: it requires supercomputers.)
- FlowViz shares some awesome accidental Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities you can replicate at home.
- PhysicsBuzz brings us a podcast on tornado physics.
- Reader Cedric Vella sent in his fluids-featuring trailer.
- io9 pointed out some great cymatics footage that shows off how granular materials and vibration creates beautiful patterns.
- And finally: what happens when you drop hot charcoal into liquid oxygen? The Periodic Table of Videos shows us, in high speed! (via Flow Visualization)
