A 2D Flow Field

A 2D fluid velocity field is represented using streamlines. A streamline is tangent to the velocity field everywhere. Streamlines for the velocity field are generated from the components of the velocity vector. You can vary the values of the coefficients, exponents, and constants of each component u and v of the velocity vector. You can restrict the range with the controls at the top.
