Rayleigh-Taylor instability

Rayleigh-Taylor This is a typical benchmark in fluid dynamics. Two fluids are initially placed one above the other with the denser on top. The initial interface between the two has a sinusoidal shape as it can be seen from the first frame of the animation. Because of gravity the two fluids start to move producing the typical patterns of the Rayleigh-Taylor instability followed by a chaotic evolution where the two fluids try to exchange their location.
