The pictures show an example of PLANT application to introduce the simulation technique having the following features:-

1. PLANT generates a MARK-linked pieces of codings which fix values of velocities of moving paddles as a function of X, Y, Z and time.

2. PLANT generates a coding in which the values of in-cell MARK are functions of X, Y, Z and time.

A series of PHOTON plots describe the fluid movements in the shroud of water pump during its start-up.
