Flow Visualization

Featured Video Play Icon

This video, created by undergraduates as part of a fluid dynamics laboratory course, shows flow visualization of a von Karman vortex street in the wake of a cylinder in comparison to a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of the same phenomenon. If you’re wondering about the black-and-white segments and the peculiar speech patterns, look no further. The students are parodying a series of videos made by MIT in the 1960s that are still used in classrooms today.
