This article describes the results of several numerical simulations of vortex dynamics in type-II superconductors. The underlying mathematical model is the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau model. The simulations concern vortex penetration in the presence of twin boundaries, interface patterns between regions of opposite vortex orientation, and magnetic-flux entry patterns in superconducting samples.
