MOVIES


Here are some selected animations from my presentations. I often use two dimensions to make it easier to visualize. Newer animations are in the QuickTime format (extension mov). To play MNG animations (file extension mng), I use mngplay under Linux and IrfanView for Windows.
  1. Development of giant fluctuations (GIF) during diffusive mixing in two dimensions without bare diffusion (reversible, top) and with bare diffusion (irreversible, bottom).
  2. "Diffusive" evolution of a line of tracers simulated using fluctuating hydrodynamics (animated GIF) without bare-diffusion, and hard-disk molecular dynamics (GIF).
  3. Giant fluctuations observed using the Inertial Incompressible Coupling method (left) and a stochastic advection-diffusion approach (right). A fluctuation-aware version of the immersed boundary code IBAMR was used to produce these animations.
  4. Giant fluctuations during diffusive mixing of two hard-disk fluids, simulated with event-driven molecular dynamics (left) and also with low Mach number fluctuating hydrodynamics. In three dimensions fluctuating hydrodynamics predicts much smaller but still giant fluctuations, as illustrated by the mixing of two hard-sphere fluids.
  5. Giant fluctuations during diffusive mixing of two miscible fluids in two dimensions, with no gravity (top), weak gravity (middle), and strong gravity (bottom). A similar "fractal" interface is seen for a wide range of Schmidt numbers, but there are also visible differences and the rescaling is not perfect.
  6. Rayleigh-Taylor instability (unstable mixing of two ideal gases under gravity) driven entirely by thermal fluctuations, that is, starting with no initial interface perturbation, as calculated using a fluctuating hydrodynamic compressible solver (also as QuickTime, Flash).
  7. Calculation of plug flow past a disk using our particle-continuum hybrid method, which combines a stochastic particle fluid with a fluctuating hydrodynamics continuum (also as QuickTime).
  8. Simulation of the Brownian motion of disk through a fluid using the particle-continuum hybrid code (also as QuickTime, Flash).
  9. Equilibration of an adiabatic piston toward thermal equilibrium, as simulated using the particle-continuum hybrid code (also as QuickTime, Flash).
  10. Brownian motion of a hard-disk polymer chain through a stationary deterministic (hard-sphere) molecular dynamics fluid (also as QuickTime, Flash).
  11. Brownian motion of a hard-disk polymer chain through a sheared stochastic (DSMC) fluid (also as QuickTime, Flash).
Older animations concerning jamming in packings of hard-particles can be found here.
