ARCHER2 Image Competition 2021 winning video

The ARCHER2 Image competition is currently open for 2022.

Last years winning video was:

Shock wave interaction with cavitation bubble.

Dr Panagiotis Tsoutsanis, Centre for Computational Engineering Sciences - Cranfield University

Interaction of a shock wave moving with Mach=2.4 and a gas-filled water bubble. These types of cavitation-bubbles can be found in several settings, ranging from our bloodstream to fuel droplets in hypersonic scramjet engines. Therefore, understanding the physical processes that occur during this interaction, can lead to more efficient targeted drug delivery, faster detection of neoplastic diseases through ultrasound imaging, and better protection from cavitation erosion and surface damage of hypersonic scramjet engines. The simulation was performed with the opensource freely available ucns3d software.
