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.

The turbulent Faraday instability in miscible fluids

Antoine Briard, Louis Gostiaux & Benoît-Joseph Gréa

Experiments of a turbulent mixing zone created by the Faraday instability at the statically stable interface between salt and fresh water are presented. The two-layer system, contained in a (...)

Storm‐induced turbidity currents on a sediment‐starved shelf : Insight from direct monitoring and repeat seabed mapping of upslope migrating bedforms

Alexandre Normandeau, Daniel Bourgault, Urs Neumeier, Patrick Lajeunesse, Guillaume St‐Onge, Louis Gostiaux & Cédric Chavanne

The monitoring of turbidity currents enables accurate internal structure and timing of these flows to be understood. Without monitoring, triggers of turbidity currents often remain hypothetical (...)

Assessing the nonequilibrium of decaying turbulence with reversed initial fields

Article dans Phys. Rev. Fluids (2019)

Assessing the nonequilibrium of decaying turbulence with reversed initial fields

F. Liu, L. P. Lu, Wouter J. T. Bos & Le Fang

Recently, it was observed that in nonequilibrium turbulent flows the normalized dissipation rate depends in a fairly universal way on the Reynolds number of the flow. To assess theoretical (...)

Diffusiophoresis, Batchelor scale and effective Péclet numbers

Article dans J. Fluid. Mech. (2019)

Diffusiophoresis, Batchelor scale and effective Péclet numbers

Florence Raynal & Romain Volk

We study the joint mixing of colloids and salt released together in a stagnation point or in a globally chaotic flow. In the presence of salt inhomogeneities, the mixing time is strongly modified (...)

Effect of fluid inertia on the orientation of a small prolate spheroid settling in turbulence

Kristian Gustavsson, Muhammad Zubair Sheikh, Diego Lopez, Aurore Naso, Alain Pumir and Bernard Mehlig

We study the angular dynamics of small non-spherical particles settling in a turbulent flow, such as ice crystals in clouds, aggregates of organic material in the oceans, or fibres settling in (...)
