Visualization of turbulent kinetic energy can be an important tool in order to check the size and intensity of the turbulent structures around the sails. This 3D representation can be integrated with other tools like the visualization of the velocity vectors and the streamlines. This comparison helps to reach a deep knowledge about the behavior of the involved physical phenomena and their complexity.
