Group effects & fluid structures
Has anyone performed any research in terms of trying to simulate & explain fluid structures & group effects?
I've currently got detailed flow-field results on display & clear group structures seem to be emerging - for incompressible fluids. I've currently isolated the contributions of each major term of the Navier-stokes equations & have these on display - in various combinations. Mathematically, the N-S are often thought of on a per element basis, but during a simulation, very definite interactions between fluid elements are observed. These interactions seem to group themselves into larger group-type effects. I'm not quite sure how a typical mathematical analysis of the N-S would be able to pick up these group phenomena, but, in a numerical simulation of many linked elements, these effects become very noticeable. I'd love to hear the viewpoints & experiences of other colleagues researching in this area, or related areas. desA |
