Stereoscopic Visualization of a Direct Numerical Simulation

The flow is away from the viewer, from the lower left to the upper right. The Reynolds number based on momentum thickness at the midpoint of the volume is 700. A passive scalar has been introduced into the flow along a spanwise line in the lower left. The spanwise scale has been expanded by a factor of 3 for clarity. This is the full computational domain of a direct numerical simulation of a developing turbulent boundary layer. The next stereogram is a top view of the same volume or you may return to the Stereoscopic Visualization menu.
