About the Authors
  • The visualization of fluid flow has played a major role in the development of fluid dynamics and its applications, from the evolution of flight to tracking weather, and understanding the flow of blood. The Fluid Dynamics Division of the American Physical Society sponsors an annual competition for outstanding images of fluid flow. This volume includes a selection of winners from 1985 to the present. Each image is accompanied by some explanatory text, making the volume an important acquisition for anyone involved in fluid flow research.

    • Unique collection of prize-winning images
    • Plenty of colour images throughout the text
    • Supplementary text provides explanatory background
