Leonardo da Vinci's turbulent tank in two dimensions

As part of his study of turbulence Leonardo da Vinci, in the years 1508–1513, illustrated the flow patterns produced by water from a channel entering a body of water from above its surface. Amongst the drawings is a study of the velocity streamlines. This figure shows that the flow within the tank consists of fluid moving into the tank then rising to the surface together with what appear to be curved streamlines ending in tight vortices around the main flow. In this paper we describe our simulations of the same problem but in two dimensions.
