Unexpected Trapping of Particles
Particle localization that arises from interaction of the intrinsic inertia of particle and fluid by visualizing the motion of particles in laminar stirred tank flow.
Evolution of a planar cross-section of a sulfur hexafluoride gas column surrounded by air and impulsively accelerated by a shock wave.
Compound Droplets on a Fiber
Two compound droplets made of pure (in blue) and soapy (in red) water and silicon oil hanging on a horizontal fiber.
Galaxy in a Kitchen Sink
A spinning pentagonal hydraulic jump and logarithmic spiral waves downstream form when a jet of fluid hits a horizontal plate, as seen from below the plate.
