Generation of internal solitary waves by frontally forced intrusions in geophysical flows

Article in Nature Communications (2016)

Generation of internal solitary waves by frontally forced intrusions in geophysical flows

Daniel Bourgault, Peter S. Galbraith, Cédric Chavanne

Internal solitary waves are hump-shaped, large-amplitude waves that are physically analogous to surface waves except that they propagate within the fluid, along density steps that typically (...)

Acceleration statistics of finite-size particles in turbulent channel flow in the absence of gravity

Article in Flow Turbul. Combust. (2016)

Acceleration statistics of finite-size particles in turbulent channel flow in the absence of gravity

Wenchao Yu, Ivana Vinkovic & Marc Buffat

The interaction between finite-size particles and turbulent channel flow in the absence of gravity is studied here by direct numerical simulation. The turbulent flow is resolved by an efficient (...)

A Kalman filter adapted to the estimation of mean gradients in the large-eddy simulation of unsteady turbulent flows

Article in Comput. Fluids (2016)

A Kalman filter adapted to the estimation of mean gradients in the large-eddy simulation of unsteady turbulent flows

Jérôme Boudet Emmanuel Lévêque, Pierre Borgnat, Adrien Cahuzac, Marc C. Jacob

A computationally-efficient method based on Kalman filtering is introduced to capture “on the fly” the low-frequency (or very large-scale) patterns of a turbulent flow in a large-eddy simulation (...)

A spectral model for homogeneous shear-driven anisotropic turbulence in terms of spherically averaged descriptors

Article in J. Fluid Mech. (2016)

A spectral model for homogeneous shear-driven anisotropic turbulence in terms of spherically averaged descriptors

Vincent Mons, Claude Cambon & Pierre Sagaut

A nonlinear spectral model in terms of spherically averaged descriptors is derived for the prediction of homogeneous turbulence dynamics in the presence of arbitrary mean-velocity gradients. The (...)

Fast power output prediction for a single row of ducted cross-flow water turbines using a BEM-RANS approach

Article in Renew. Energy (2016)

Fast power output prediction for a single row of ducted cross-flow water turbines using a BEM-RANS approach

Favio Dominguez, Jean-Luc Achard, Jerônimo Zanette, Christophe Corre

A numerical model is proposed to efficiently compute the power produced by a row of Vertical Axis Water Turbines (VAWTs) deployed in parallel for various water flow conditions. As the (...)

Super-resolution of turbulent passive scalar images using data assimilation

Article in Exp. Fluids (2016)

Super-resolution of turbulent passive scalar images using data assimilation

Pascal Zille, Thomas Corpetti, Liang Shao & Chen Xu

In this paper, the problem of improving the quality of low-resolution passive scalar image sequences is addressed. This situation, known as “image super-resolution” in computer vision, aroused to (...)

A dynamic regularized gradient model of the subgrid-scale stress tensor for large-eddy simulation

Article in Phys. Fluids (2016)

A dynamic regularized gradient model of the subgrid-scale stress tensor for large-eddy simulation

Antoine Vollant, Guillaume Balarac & Christophe Corre

Large-eddy simulation (LES) solves only the large scales part of turbulent flows by using a scales separation based on a filtering operation. The solution of the filtered Navier-Stokes equations (...)
