Plateau–Rayleigh instability: a bit more

Hey. This page is more than 3 years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

See this previous post for some background. Funny how things come back around isn’t it? I had been looking at a Julia CFD implementation called Waterlily.jl, which made me recall reading about Fast Fluid dynamics. FFD was invented by Jos Stam in his paper Real-Time Fluid Dynamics for Games – pdf at the end of this post.

In that paper, Stam refers to An Album of Fluid Motion, a 177-page photo album of monotone fluid flow streams (it’s a ~44MB file – patience).

I was flicking through the album and landed on page 73. Looks familiar.

What of it?

Still just a placeholder for someday concluding my 18-year-old self’s A-level physics paper.

Not today.

Some paper references (save looking for them online)
