SECTION : Vector Fields     

SUBJECT: A Fluid Flow with Two Circulations in Opposite Senses  

The animation shows a flow field using animated textures. The direction of the velocity field is indicated by the correlation in the textures. When animated, the texture patterns move in the direction of the velocity field. This flow field has two different circulations located at different points and with different strengths. The sense of the circulation is counterclockwise for one and clockwise for the other.
