Reply To: Reversed Magnus effect


Hi Martins,

thank you for your answer. I added your issue to our tracking system.
I have a question on your videos, so correct me if I’m wrong:

I assume the flow is induced by the cube settling under gravity. This should induce a flow in positive y-direction (I can’t verify as the magnitude of velocity is depicted). The Magnus effect states that the particle moves to the side where rotation and flow align. This means a counter-clockwise rotation should lead to the particle drafting to the right. This means your results with the original rotation matrix in the first video are already correct?

Best regards
