A stagnation point occurs whenever a flow impinges on a solid object. Usually there are other important features of the flow. The stagnation point depicted in the animation below usually occupies just a small region embedded in a larger, more complex flow.
Press the play button (small triangle) in the lower left corner of the graphics window to start the animation. The two buttons in the lower right corner can be used to step through the animations one frame at at time.
