Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork

Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork
When a droplet falls into shallow water, it creates a crown or "coronet". This droplet simulation was calculated using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). SPH is one of the most impressive-looking fluid simulation techniques.

Visualising Subversion with Gource Over the weekend I stumbled across a video link, released (I assume) by Flickr. The video is a visualisation of the last 7 years of commits into the Flickr Subversion repository. Wow, there’s a lot of work been done to Flickr over the past 7 years! What’s even more interesting is you can easily create the same type of visualisation with your own project using an open-source project called Gource. Gource is a version control visualisation tool developed by Andrew Caudwell. The videos produced by Gource really illustrate how much work goes into projects over time, with each developer ‘shooting a laser’ at each file created / changed / deleted. Creating the videos is fairly simple, I’ll give you a step by step guide how to do it using an SVN repository below. First you will want to grab a copy of Gource and extract the zip file to somewhere easily accessible. Next you need to export the SVN repository log file to an XML document. Great! Saving the video As simple as that!

How To Draw "How to Draw" is a collection of tutorials that will teach you everything from perspective basics to shading chrome. Never picked up a pencil before? Fear not! From simple line drawings to modern art and easy animations, we've got you covered. Instructables is the most popular project-sharing community on the Internet. gource visualisation tool Gource is a software version control visualization tool. See more of Gource in action on the Videos page. Introduction Software projects are displayed by Gource as an animated tree with the root directory of the project at its centre. Directories appear as branches with files as leaves. Developers can be seen working on the tree at the times they contributed to the project. Currently Gource includes built-in log generation support for Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and SVN (as of 0.29).

16 tips to improve as a graphic designer Graphic design is a field that is quickly changing, both creatively and technically, and while it is easy to get caught up in learning new technical skills, it is just as important to focus improving and pushing the limits of our creativity. While in design school, it was easy to surround myself with inspiration and engage in activities that helped my understanding of effective design. Once I graduated I feared losing it, since I was no longer surrounded by a learning environment. I made it a point to continue educating myself as much as possible and become more active in the field of design. Become a collector Each time you see a design that inspires you, collect it, bring it home and file it away. Buy books Having an extensive book collection is always essential to learning. Read design-related blogs I can’t stress enough how much information I have learned by reading other great designers blogs. Start a design blog Join and be active in the design community Take lots of photos Take classes

The Product Space and the Wealth of Nations The concept of proximity formalizes the intuitive idea that the ability of a country to produce a product depends on its ability to produce other ones. For example, a country with the ability to export apples will probably have most of the conditions suitable to export pears. Unfortunately this intuitive definition of proximity is, very cumbersome to measure. The authors generated a network representation of the original proximity matrix to help them develop intuition about its structure as well as to visualize and study the dynamics of countries on it. Another advantage of using a network representation is that we can simultaneously look at the structure of the space and other covariates. To see the full list of country maps click here.

Thank you,I,ve placed it into my pearltrees. I very much appreciate this. by ixgagbalamvucub Mar 18

Thanks I was working on that today I'll send you the link ;-) by mirlen101 Mar 17

I think that it would be an excellent idea to create a pearltree dedicated to these different classes of waves as in one way,or another they are interconnected. This may very well end up being a large pearltree, as there is a large amount of very interesting information on particle waves,the behaviour of particles when observed,as versus unobserved,which inturn has an effect on how the particle waves themselves are formed. The subject of particle waves themselves would consist of several informative,and fascinating pearls. by ixgagbalamvucub Mar 17

Ned worked on exhibits at the science Exploratorium in San Francisco before going out on his own as an architechtual artist.The Exploratorium is an awesome place for cool science exhibits .
The "wave theory of everything" will be wide in scope . Physics , art , education , fluid dynamics , sound waves , brain waves , light waves etc. I started one in an art section and another in a brain science section . I'm going to keep those going but I wanted to do one with a wider scope using all three . Mind , physics and art etc.. I guess I should start it in the physics pearltree .
Be great to have you on board ! ;-) Your input will be greatly appreciated ! Especially on sorting out the flow , structure of categories . by mirlen101 Mar 16

Love the wind veils of Ned Kahn - very specky! It's a great direction to take a Pearltree on Wave Theory . . . the curatorial nature of this application must be dynamic for its full effect. I'll look forward to your new Pearltree and hope I can Team Up on it. I'll provide a branch on Solitons. by pauljacobson Mar 16

I have wave theory pearltrees in at least 3 separate sections . There's sound waves , fluid waves, particle waves , light waves , gravity waves, art based waves ( like VFL , video feedback loops ). The list keeps expanding out and cross linking . Wave theory is getting to be way more popular in research . Really amazing things coming out of it . Especially brain wave research ! It is mind blowing stuff ! ;-)
I'm going to have to start a new wave theory pearltree just to tie it all together ! by mirlen101 Mar 14

Hi dmoton - this is fantastic! The beauty of mathematics comes to the fore in complexity. I have picked this pearl for continuing reference. Back in the 90s I was very proud of my computer graphics in Photoshop of scenes underwater back lit by rays of light (and ripple effects). All algorithms. by pauljacobson Mar 14
