The picture used in this assignment utilizes a laser sheet in a dark room and smoke being blown into it. When the smoke crosses the sheet of laser, a 2D-like projection of the flow can be visualized. For the final image, edits were used to create an image that looked like it could’ve been painted with a neon aesthetic. The sharp contrast of neon green on black gives a spooky neon feeling. The room used made for a difficult capture of this fluid flow due to the natural currents of the room. The smoke would only be visible for a brief moment before being swept away. This method of flow visualization is a fun way to observe turbulence and what a cross section of that turbulence projection would look like.
Below is a video I took of a person exhaling vapor from their mouth. The vapor shows the flow of the subjects breath as they exhale.
Here, uncolored water was dropped using the drop rig into a mug filled with water dyed blue with food coloring. Lighting was accomplished with blue and red films placed over the flash bulbs. The Worthington jet can be seen clearly.
