The Beautiful Unpredictability of Coffee, Clouds, and Fire - Facts So Romantic - Nautilus

The Beautiful Unpredictability of Coffee, Clouds, and Fire - Facts So Romantic - Nautilus | Sediment transport mechanics | Scoop.it
In fluid dynamics, the science of how liquids and gases move, turbulence is a state of being. Any flow may be, or may become, turbulent. In fact, at the human scale, most flows are turbulent. The flickering flames of a campfire, the white-capped froth of river rapids, and the swirling eddies of milk poured into coffee are all examples of everyday turbulence. Turbulent flows often appear random or chaotic at a glance. Who could, for example, predict the exact way a drop of ink will curl and split when dropped in a glass of water? The complexity of turbulence is part of its beauty. Spend an hour watching the clouds roll overhead and no two of them will be the same. The complexity and dynamic motion of turbulence make these flows fascinating, even mesmerizing, to watch. Humans are a pattern-seeking species. We like to seek order in apparent chaos, and this, perhaps, is what makes turbulence such a captivating subject for scientists and artists alike.
