Q criterion isosurface visualizations of a direct numerical simulation of a zero-pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layer flow at a momentum thickness Reynolds number of 5200 by the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid Fluid Dynamics Group. Isosurfaces of Q = 0 are colored by normalized streamwise, wall-normal, and transverse velocities.
