Fluids are Cool Gallery

A collection of creative work depicting the science, beauty, and power of fluids

This one is for you, fall 2017 fluid mechanicians! Send me your material for extra HW points – if its a photo, you need a brief caption describing how it relates to fluid mechanics and related topics. If poetry or original artwork, no caption required (as in the original work above by Laura Strang ’18).

I’ll kick it off with some bad haiku and a photo of the Delaware River:

Professor Brandes
doing fluid mechanics
because its so cool

The swirl of water
a mystery so complex
I need a coffee
