Beautiful fluid dynamics

If I see such beautiful videos or figures I know why I started to be involved in fluid dynamics, although what I do can’t be presented in such nice videos. Not yet at least ūüė¶

Detlef Lohse’s groups (known through many other award winning fluid videos, e.g. the sound of the snapping shrimp or other ones) published this work recently in J. Stat. Mech. and provided some other nice videos to it. Thanks to imechanica for bringing this to my attention.

    Any practical use of this effect?

    That is the question almost every student is afraid of who is dealing with basic/fundamental studies. It is more the physics behind the phenomena which drives him and it is the curiosity and not too much the application. At least that is what drives me. Nevertheless there are no anymore many fundings without concrete technical applications, hence one has to be keen to find such possibilities. One possible application is mentioned in the end of the video, but ones published others will have the change to find very different practical applications.
