Superfluid turbulence consists of a disordered tangle of quantized vortex filaments which interact with each other and with the normal fluid. We develop a kinematic model of normal-fluid turbulence to study superfluid vortex tangles at finite temperatures and show by numerical simulation that the system of filaments has a fractal dimension larger than one. We find that the fractal dimension is directly related to the vortex-line density and is independent of temperature over a wide range.
