Turbulence & Instabilités

Responsable : Florence Raynal

Les activités de l’équipe, à caractère plutôt fondamentales, concernent l’analyse des instabilités hydrodynamiques, la transition laminaire/turbulence, les écoulements turbulents, et les écoulements à petite échelle.

Capturing waves and extracting wave signatures in simulations of stratified turbulence

Mardi 24 avril, 13h, ECL bât I11 salle de réunion 1er étage

The objective of this study is to extract the signature of internal gravity waves in stratified turbulence and to characterize them and their relative importance. With the advent of very (...)

Scaling laws for mixing and dissipation in unforced rotating stratified turbulence

Annick Pouquet, Duane Rosenberg, Raffaele Marino and Corentin Herbert

We present a model for the scaling of mixing in weakly rotating stratified flows characterized by their Rossby, Froude and Reynolds numbers , $Ro$, $Fr$, $Re$. This model is based on (...)

Simulations of viscous and compressible gas–gas flows using high-order finite difference schemes

Marion Capuano, Christophe Bogey & Peter Spelt

A computational method for the simulation of viscous and compressible gas–gas flows is presented. It consists in solving the Navier–Stokes equations associated with a convection equation governing (...)

The effective diffusivity of ordered and freely evolving bubbly suspensions

Aurore Loisy, Aurore Naso & Peter D. M. Spelt

We investigate the dispersion of a passive scalar such as the concentration of a chemical species, or temperature, in homogeneous bubbly suspensions, by determining an effective diffusivity (...)

Self-similar regimes of turbulence in weakly coupled plasmas under compression

Giovanni Viciconte, Benoît-Joseph Gréa, & Fabien S. Godeferd

Plasmas under strong compression, as existing in inertial confinement fusion capsules, experience a tremendous growth of their viscosity coefficient due to the temperature increase. It is known (...)

Nonlinear travelling waves in rotating Hagen-Poiseuille flow

Benoît Pier & Rama Govindarajan

The dynamics of viscous flow through a rotating pipe is considered. Small-amplitude stability characteristics are obtained by linearizing the Navier—Stokes equations around the base flow and (...)
