Laminar Flow Around a Sphere
flow_around_sphere_zoomed.png
Description
This simulation generates a vector field around a sphere with radius 1 m. One of three fluids can be selected from the dropdown menu. The slider changes the fluid velocity. The vector field automaticaly updates if a parameter is changed. The fluid velocity may change when a new fluid is selected in order to keep the Reynold’s number within a valid range.
