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.

Transition from axisymmetric to three-dimensional turbulence

Zecong Qin, Aurore Naso & Wouter Bos

In purely axisymmetric turbulence sustained by a linear forcing mechanism, a stable, entirely poloidal flow is observed when the toroidal component of the forcing is below a threshold. We (...)

Three-dimensional turbulence without vortex stretching

Wouter Bos

We consider three-dimensional turbulence from which vortex stretching is removed. The resulting system conserves enstrophy, but does not conserve kinetic energy. Using spectral closure, it is (...)

Modeling the role of clusters and diffusion in the evolution of COVID-19 infections during lock-down

Wouter Bos, Jean-Pierre Bertoglio & Louis Gostiaux

The dynamics of the spread of epidemics, such as the recent outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, is highly nonlinear and therefore difficult to predict. As time evolves in the present pandemic, it (...)
