We are excited to announce that Dr. Truscott is a 2015 Office of Naval Research Recipient! The award is linked the work entitled Natural swarms and crowds: Observation and Modeling. This grant allows the Splash Lab [...]
We are happy to announce that we were selected as winners of the 2014 gallery of fluid motion. The contest hosts approx. 150 entries with 12 winners, which were really fun to see this year. [...]
We are happy to announce that our 3D flow fields around a flapping toy and moth is now published in Experiments in fluids. This work demonstrates the marriage of data from our SAPIV system, wherein [...]
We are pleased to announce another publication in Physics of Fluids entitled "Catastrophic cracking courtesy of quiescent cavitation" in the September issue. We are featured as one of the Gallery of Fluid Motion papers. These [...]
This week Splash Lab ran the 2nd annual Utah Underwater Robotics competition at the Lehi Legacy center. The only ROV competition in the state of Utah. Over 450 middle and elementary school-age students participated. Throughout [...]
On September 18, 2013 our lab was published in Physics of Fluids (Vol.25, Issue 9). The article is called: "A new angle on water entry" by Kyle Bodily, Ken Langley, Jordan Huey, and Tadd T. Truscott. To [...]
Splash Lab's YouTube video "Hawk Moth wings captured in slow motion" was used in a new video created by Garth Horner. Below is the collaborative video:

Professor Tadd Truscott and graduate student Jesse Daily were featured on Inside Science TV demonstrating the science behind the bottle-exploding trick. Jesse's thesis elucidates the phenomenon in more detail with a publication to come.
Last week an article from our lab featuring a detailed overview of Synthetic Aperture Particle Image Velocimetry was published in the Journal of Visual Experiments. You can watch the video and read the article on the [...]
Last Fall The Physics arXiv Blog highlighted us in the MIT Technology Review. Thanks guys we appreciate all of the good press. A link to their article can be found here.
Dr. Truscott is well known for his tasteful collection of non-pretentious bowties. In this video he shares his secret, so that you too can rock the bowtie.
Today we were published in Experiments in Fluids. Our article entitled "Three Dimensional Bubble Field Resolution Using Synthetic Aperture Imaging: Application to a Plunging Jet" outlines a method for measuring bubble fields in three dimensions. [...]
Our research was on Science Friday again. This time they highlighted some of our spinning egg studies. Here's a link to the article and the video that they made.
