Fluids Lab takes home APS/DFD Milton van Dyke Award

fullsizeCongratulations to members of the UNC Joint Applied Math and Marine Sciences Fluids Lab for winning one of the top prizes in the Gallery of Fluid Motion at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics. Their poster, Variable density vortex ring dynamics in sharply stratified ambient fluids, was honored with one of the Milton van Dyke Awards, named for the author of the classic fluid dynamics visualization book, An Album of Fluid Motion. Poster authors included Professors Roberto Camassa and Rich McLaughlin, current postdocs Dan Harris and Pierre-Yves Passaggia, and former Carolina Mathematics students David Holz and Claudio Viotti and former postdoc Keith Mertens.
