  4. Water impacting a sink drain exhibits a hydraulic jump; a thin sheet of fast water 'jumps', becoming a slower, thicker sheet. The slower fluid circles around the high speed fluid to reach the drain. By Hanna Schumacher.

Flow visualization is the process of making the physics of fluid flows (gases, liquids) visible. In this course, we explore a range of techniques for creating images of fluid flows. Our work is motivated not just by the utility and importance of fluid flows, but also by their inherent beauty. The Flow Visualization course is designed for mixed teams of engineering and fine arts photography and video students at the University of Colorado, but anybody who has paid attention to the patterns while stirring milk into coffee or stared at the curl of a rising tendril of smoke has participated in flow visualization, and will understand the purpose of this course.
