SECTION : Vector Fields    

SUBJECT: A Fluid Flow with a Circulation  

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 is a pure circulaton. There is no source here, the fluid simply moves in circles with no destruction or creation of fluid particles.
