Flow Visualization Public Showing

Flow visualization is for everybody! If you've paid attention to patterns while stirring milk into coffee or stared at the curl of a rising tendril of smoke, you have participated in flow visualization. Simply put, flow visualization is the process of making the physics of fluid flows (gases, liquids) visible. 

CU Boulder mechanical engineering Professor Jean Hertzberg teaches flow visualization to mixed teams of engineering and fine arts photography and video students at CU Boulder. Now it is time for them to showcase not only the utility and importance of fluid flows but also their inherent beauty.

Curious to learn more? A complete catalog of student work is published at Flowvis.org

Snacks will be available before the event starting at 4:30 p.m. and the videos by students will be shown in Fiske Planetarium starting at 5 p.m. Tickets are free.
