Wax and Water

10 06 2009

During my first semester at Pratt we analyzed the material interaction of wax and water. Different results emerged depending on the temperatures of the 2 different materials as well as the fashion in which they are introduced. In my case I mapped and simulated the process of both hot water and hot wax flowing down a surface while cooling. This resulted in the water pulling the wax down the surface and layering on top of its self. Below is a diagram of a density map, where wax built up and layered in some areas while thinning in others. The image is the result of a rhinoscript that simulates this process.
