Description:


    Smooth, laminar flow over a flat plate eventually becomes turbulent. The transition to turbulence generally occurs on a scale that is too small and too fast for an observer to appreciate in an empirical experiment. This application lets the user track the development of a turbulent spot (from a numerical simulation) at a size and speed that are comprehensible.
