State of the art graphics reveal Vortex Physics

"State-of-the-art computer graphic systems developed for movies and games have made it possible to model in unprecedented detail the swirling rings and tubes that are a characteristic of turbulent vortices. As well as being stunning to look at, the models will help explain the forces that govern vortex decay. This could lead to ways to control them in places where they cause problems, such as over aircraft wings or in blood vessels."

Watch some stunning new vortex simulations that are helping physicists understand turbulence.
