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. Droplet Links Liquid Sculpture - beautiful high speed photographs, by Martin Waugh, see also this video Water Figures - beautiful high-speed camera splashes by Fotoopa Other Links Fluids v.1 - fast SPH C++ program by Rama Hoetzlein Physics Demos - fluid Java applets by Grant Kot Fluid Animations - amazing animations by Ron Fedkiw, with Eran Guendelman, Andrew Selle, Frank Losasso, et al.

Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. These animations were written by David M.

Physics Simulation with Java 10 Websites To Make You Think | The Online Learning Blog from Study2U Supposedly browsing the internet requires more brain power than watching television. Although judging from some of the websites we’ve come across that assumption is cast into doubt. Here’s some of the sites we like that might get your brain to sit up and listen. Ted A conference that started in 1984 bringing together experts in technology, entertainment and design quickly grew into so much more. New Scientist The New Scientist website carries new articles from the magazine as well as the NS archive of over 76,000 pieces. Big Think The Big Think website is a collection of ‘global thought leaders’ who offer their thoughts and analysis on world events and other important developments. Café Scientifque ‘for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology’ Breathing Earth This fantastic website by David Bleja demonstrates CO2 emissions and world population growth in real time on a global map.

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
