Abstract:

Fundamentals of turbulence, both experimental and theoretical turbulent instrumentation and future experimental techniques full field measurements, multipoint and multitime image velocity and concentration measurements scalar mixing, including turbulent chemical reactions experimental techniques in and fluid physics of high speed compressible or reacting flows undergoing significant changes of indices of refraction. Possible Topics Coherent structures and their relation to smaller scales in turbulent shear flows implications of chaos for turbulence and transition, chaotic behavior in experimental fluid mechanics homogeneous turbulence, including closures and statistical properties turbulence in compressible fluids fine scale structure at high turbulence Reynolds numbers direct numerical simulation, subgrid scale, and other turbulent transport, including its effect on chemical reactions and its interactions with combustion high-speed wall boundary and free shear layers Lagrangian turbulence turbulent flows containing particles, bubbles, and drops, turbulence in non-Newtonian liquids buoyancy effects in turbulent flows laser-Doppler, hot wire, and hot film anemometry novel measurement techniques flow visualization, holography, image analysis boundary layer modification and control interactions of turbulence with wave structures wind-generated waves and other oceanographic applications atmospheric boundary layers and turbulence implications of turbulence in the environment including pollution, estuarial and tidal channel flows, plumes, cloud physics industrial, aeronautical, and astronautical applications.
