    I've seen this same sort of pattern in a fluid dynamics experiment, though I can't remember the details. When jets where applied at the circum. of a vat, the vortex formed was in various shapes, one like a hexagon. It had something to do with standing waves maybe.

    You might cross post this to general physics or engineering.
