The processes responsible for generating the mean azimuthal atmospheric winds observed on Jupiter and Saturn, which feature large prograde equatorial jets and jets of alternating direction at higher latitudes, have yet to be conclusively resolved. Results from three dimensional numerical models...
The rise in motor vehicle ownership has become not only an environmental issue, but also a public health threat as pollutants emitted negatively affect human health (Deng et al., 2017). One such pollutant is particulate matter, which has been regulated by a variety of countries because it...
The turbulent motion of particles and their interactions with the turbulence of the carrier phase make a complex system. Hence understanding the physics and consequently developing a well-stablished model becomes very difficult. With insufficient computational power to numerically resolve all the...
The current work presents the results of an experimental study on the effects of submergence on the performance of a submerged hydraulic jump with baffle blocks downstream of a sluice gate. A wide range of Froude numbers, submergence factors, and block sizes, locations and arrangements were...
Experiments investigating momentum transfer, turbulence and air-water gas transfer in a wind wave tankDownload
A series of laboratory experiments were conducted at three fetches of 4.8, 8.8 and 12.4 m, and at six wind speeds ranging from 4.1 to 9.6 m/s at each fetch in a wind-wave-current research facility. In addition, five surfactant-influenced experiments were conducted at concentrations ranging from...
We report upon an experimental study of internal gravity waves generated by the large-amplitude vertical oscillations of a circular cylinder in uniformly stratified fluid. Quantitative measurements are performed using a modified synthetic schlieren technique for strongly stratified solutions of...
Internal gravity waves transport energy and momentum in both the atmosphere and the ocean. This physical process occurs at such small length scales that it is not captured by coarse resolution numerical models of weather and climate. A series of experiments is presented that model the generation...
Turbulence is a chaotic motion of fluid that can be described by the Navier--Stokes equations or even highly simplified shell models. Under the continuum limit, standard shell models of turbulence are shown to reduce to a common evolution equation that reproduces many predictions of the...
