SECTION : Vector Fields       

SUBJECT: A Fluid Flow with a Source  

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 a source at the origin, and the texture patterns move away from that point.
