Onno Bokhove donates steel soliton splash sculptures to Newton Institute

solitonThe sculptures shown on the left were conceived and created by Wout Zweers, Valerie Zwart and Onno Bokhove as part of their work on a paper entitled Making waves: visualizing fluid flows.  They were donated to the Newton Institute by the Stichting Free Flow Foundation.  To create the sculptures, a film was made of splashes in a wave channel at the University of Twente, and the individual stills were examined. Outlines from a chosen set of stills were then traced by hand before being modelled into three-dimensional pieces. The sculptures can be viewed in the Institute Library.
