A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to Airflow.
Airflow around an aircraft wingtip
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of airflow at an aircraft's wingtip. Vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
Pressure around an aircraft wing
CFD visualisation to show the pressure distribution around an aircraft wing. The curved shape creates lift by forcing air to move faster over the top of a wing.
Cross section of pressure around a wing
Rendering the volume of air that is affected by an aerofoil surface. Low pressure areas, responsible for creating lift, are shown in blue.
Airflow around an aircraft wing
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of an aircraft wing, with a 3 degree angle of attack. Including a turntable showing a 360° look at airflow around a wing.
