Open Day at the Uni

Exeter University held an Open Day yesterday for prospective students, and I went along and showed some of my work to visitors of the Fluids Lab. It was great to chat to everyone, including staff and students already at Exeter, some of whom I hadn’t met before.

I showed the visitors soap film equipment and flow past a cylinder .. here are a couple of pictures I took along the way. ‘Planet creation’, with its inner red glow, is reminiscent of a planet still forming. The second image ‘So near, yet so far’ shows a very slow, creeping flow going around the base of the cylinder, then meeting up, but not merging, but diverging instead.
