Large Eddy Simulation of a fluid vortex (Multiphase) - It looks like a blackhole!

I read an article the other day about a research done in Nottingham University where they simulated a real vortex in an attempt to analogously study blackhole. They used a large container filled with water, a hole in the middle, 2 inlets for water and a dye! I really wanted to re-create this simulation using ANSYS Fluent and I did. I will be posting the full tutorial soon, but here is a glimpse:

    Looking forward to the tutorial Raef. Would you be able to attach the article along with the tutorial?

    Really very interesting the methodology used to perform experiment to study a black hole by the students, a simple application method for a big problem ...

    I wait for the tutorial, I believe it will clarify some doubts I have on how to model multiphase flow using LES. Congratulations for the work Raef, by the images the simulation was very cool.
