1. Total internal reflection in a water stream traps three lasers. As the water level in the supply tank dropped, beams were eliminated, changing the color in the catch bucket. By Jiffer Harriman, Chris Francklyn, Lindsey Yarnell, Faith Batrack and David Gagne. This was created for a course on Flow Visualization at the University of Colorado, Boulder, Team Second Assignment, 2013. For more information, visit colorado.edu/MCEN/flowvis/

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.
