Parallel simulation of hydrodynamics and acoustics inside wind musical instruments, 1994
by Panayotis Skordos

CFD-simulation of a soprano recorder using 20 workstations. Each black rectangle corresponds to one workstation. The brown areas are solid walls and are not simulated. The green and the red lines correspond to positive and negative isocontours of vorticity. The recorder pipe is 20cm long and produces tones near 400 and 1100Hz. Air is entering the flue at 1200cm/sec. The snapshot is taken 25 milliseconds after startup.

Magnified view of the sharp edge of the recorder.
