PHOENIX, AZ, November 22, 2021 — The American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) is pleased to announce the award-winning posters and videos of the 39th Annual Gallery of Fluid Motion. A highlight of the annual DFD meeting since 1987, the Gallery features striking visualizations of experiments and simulations that illustrate the science of fluid motion.
“This year’s entries ranged from various facets of fluid dynamics from cloud physics to mechanical wings that learn to fly efficiently, to tempura’s frying in the oil,” said Gokul Pathikonda, assistant professor in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy at Arizona State University and the local organizer for the Gallery. “They capture the beauty of fluid dynamics that we encounter both in our everyday lives and in highly specialized applications, in a way our eyes cannot observe otherwise.”
A panel of scientists evaluated a total of 96 entries (63 videos and 33 posters) from around the world on both their aesthetic and scientific qualities. The top prizes in each category are named for the late Stanford University fluid mechanics professor Milton Van Dyke, whose "An Album of Fluid Motion" has inspired researchers in the field for decades.
The winning authors are invited to submit a paper about their poster or video to be published as part of a special collection in Physical Review Fluids ahead of the 2022 DFD meeting. See last year’s collection at https://journals.aps.org/prfluids/collections/2020-gallery-fluid-motion.
