Simulation of a shock wave collision with low-density bubble
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
This is an animation of a fluid dynamics simulation appearing in http://dx.doi.org/10.1137/110856976. The compressible Euler equations are solved using weighted essentially non-oscillatory methods and a Roe Riemann solver, all implemented in PyClaw. A shock wave enters from the left and collides with a low-density bubble. The simulation is reduced from 2 to 3 dimensions by assuming cylindrical symmetry.
