My PhD work has included the study of self-excited oscillations from fluid-structure interactions. This piece shows the pressure within a device undergoing fluid-structure interactions for many different experimental conditions. The height of the plot is indicated by the magnitude of the pressure with time moving from left to right. The different lines going from front to back are for different experimental conditions and are sorted by the oscillation frequency. This yields an interesting visual where the data shows periodic mounds of pressure in time.
