Abstract:

A theory for the motion of two-dimensional turbulent vortex pairs in homogeneous media has been developed based on separate velocity scaling of the internal and external flow fields involved in the motion and taking into account variations in volume, circulation, momentum, and energy. Based on the results obtained from this theory, a simplified theory is derived to deal with the rising motion of turbulent vortex pairs in stratified media. The theoretical results are compared with systematic experimental observations.
