AbstractPinwheel Nebulae are colliding wind binaries (CWB) composed of a Wolf-Rayet star and an early-type star. We first compare our simulations to analytic solutions for CWB. Then we perform large scale 2D simulations of the particular system WR 104. We determine the properties of the gas in the winds and confirm the flow in the spiral has a ballistic motion.
