Laboratory experiments on dipolar vortices in a shallow-layer fluid (EM forcing) or in a rotating fluid. Dye visualization, PIV flow measurements. Numerical simulations with COMSOL. Cases to be considered: dipole colliding against plate with sharp edge, against a corrugated wall (with a zigzag profile), against a row of cylinders, against a wall with an opening.
