flow over an airfoil

An airflow animation from Professor Colombini in Genoa. Note how the flow over the top surface of the airfoil reaches the trailing edge faster than the flow over the lower surface, forming a shear layer (or vortex sheet) at the trailing edge.

Professor Colombini has several other animations available at wings and cylinders.

The animation was sent to me by Jan-Olov Newborg, Stockholm.
