Wind Tunnel Lite
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Turn your iPad/iPhone into a wind tunnel simulator !
Watch the fluid flow around obstacles.
Tap the blue button to bring application controls, letting you choose between particles or smoke rendering, and between different models. Interact with the fluid via single or mutli-touch.
Fluid motion is computed by solving Navier-Stokes equations, at high definition (15000 particles moving in a simulation grid of 19000 cells on ipad) thanks to a well-optimized code taking the most out of CPU performance.
Our demanding physics engine uses advanced processor features, the app runs best on iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 3rd generation. It will run on older devices but with lower resolution and frame rates !
What's New in Version 1.2
New fluid simulation engine, more accurate and realistic.
It was a soothing app. I really liked it! The only thing that annoyed me is that every few second a add keeps popping up telling me to buy the full version. But other than that the app is totally fine. Very relaxing just like "Fluid". My favorite option in the app is the one where you can make the water flow with your fingers!
Cool teaching aid
I am teaching people to fly a paraglider and it has become a helpful tool to make my students understand rotor and mechanical turbulence as well as how an airfoil works. Love it!
This is an amazing app
I didn't realize you could make these simulations on an iPad. I am very impressed.
