SECTION : Vector Fields     

SUBJECT: A Fluid Flow with a Source and a Sink  

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 both a source and a sink. Near the source or sink, the texture patterns move away from the source or towards the sink.
