Caption: Fire plumes. Computer simulation of large fire plumes. The simulation reveals turbulence and the unstable nature of fire plumes. The instability causes unsteady heat transfer and makes it hard to predict the outcome of large fires. Computer models such as this help researchers understand the nature of fire. Image created in 2007 at the University of Buffalo, USA.
