Visualizations of fluids and turbulence
I have always been fascinated by turbulence and more generally with the mesmerizing movements of fluids. When I discovered they can (more or less) be described/simulated mathematically, it was even more crazy to me. Want to try? Meet the Navier-Stokes equations!
Find below my own sticky notes of tools, authors and websites leading to visualizations of observed or simulated flows, including turbulence. Whenever possible, using Python. I will update this when I find more sources, so feel free to come back every once in a while :)
So let's start from the beginning:
12 steps to Navier-Stokes equations
Yes, and it's a full course!! This is a practical module for learning the foundations of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) by coding solutions to the basic partial differential equations that describe the physics of fluid flow.
