Rayleigh Benard Convection Cells

Requested by: Duy Nguyen

Hello hello, I'm a houdini newbie trying to recreate a fluid dynamic called Rayleigh-Benard Convection where in a fluid container there is a temperature gradient between the top and bottom layers. This gradient produces a flow that creates these beautiful cells to form that I want to render.

Will pay for a working asset!
