Bees, Squid and Oil Plumes
Spring has almost sprung which means we’re taking a look at the fluid dynamics of bees, how to build squid-inspired robots and modelling oil plumes eight years on from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Featuring interviews with researchers from the APS-DFD 2017 conference discussing their work on particle-laden viscous fluids, self-propelling underwater vehicles and rotating buoyant plumes.
