2011 Image Gallery

Gallery of Fluid Motion

The Division of Fluid Dynamics exists for the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of the physics of fluids with special emphasis on the dynamical theories of the liquid, plastic and gaseous states of matter under all conditions of temperature and pressure. Every year, the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics hosts a physical Gallery of Fluid Motion at its annual meeting -- a room where stunning graphics and videos from computational or experimental studies showing flow phenomena are displayed.

The most outstanding entries are selected by a panel of referees for artistic content and honored for their originality and ability to convey information. Other outstanding entries, selected by a panel of referees for artistic content, originality and ability to convey information, will be honored during the Meeting, placed on display at the Annual APS 2012 March Meeting, and appear in the annual “Gallery of Fluid Motion” article in the September 2012 issue of the American Institute of Physics' journal, Physics of Fluids. Past winners are also published in the  Physics of Fluids.
