Summary

A color movie is produced to demonstrate the three prototypes of relaminarization of an initially turbulent flow discussed by Narasimha and Sreenivasan (1). Five experiments, four of which are in water, and one in air as working medium are performed. The experiments in water involve color dye visualization and the experiment in air (in a supersonic wind tunnel) utilizes the color Schlieren technique.
