Beautiful images when it does not converge!
Anyone notices that whenever the simulation does not converge, the images of velocity contours are really beautiful! Like a tornado!

Ah, good old "Colourful Fluid Dynamics"... "when numbers are so virtual that they can only be art" :D

I don't have any picture handy on a simulation gone artistic, but I've remembered just now a mesh gone very wrong! We ended up turning it into a banner for our company's website :cool::
The geometry was so thin, that the mesher went: "the what-now goes where?"

Note: I didn't post it as a rendered image here, so that it wouldn't look like a blatant advertisement post :rolleyes:
