Videos made with ASPECT

Many simulations made with ASPECT can be visualized beautifully to provide insight into the structure of the solution or to illuminate a particular angle of what has been computed. Below are links to a few of these videos.

Information about what each of the videos shows can generally be obtained by clicking on the title shown at the top. Also click on the title to get to a place where you can select a larger view.
