 The following animation shows the velocity field for water under the action of the axial pump. The z-component of the velocity is plotted.


Velocity field for water subjected to the action of an axial pump.


The next image contains the highly-resolved water-air interface. Even small droplets are accurately represented as it can be seen on the left side of the picture.


This image shows once more the water-air interface, now focusing on the precise representation of capillary waves.


Incidentally, a thin jet is initially projected in the middle of the spray, before the cone is fully developed. This jet offers a nice example of a Rayleigh-Plateau instability, as it breaks up under the effect of surface tension. This can be seen if the liquid sheet is cut out from the above video.
