The comparison highlighted the difficulty of speci-fying an adequate spatial domain for numerical and experimen-tal studies so that an accurate determination of integral length is obtained. The scale properties of anisotropic and isotropic turbulence in the urban surface layer are investigated.

A dimensionless anisotropic tensor is introduced and the turbulent tensor anisotropic coefficient, defined as C, where \(C = 3d_{3}\,+\,1 (d_{3}\) is the minimum eigenvalue of the tensor) is used to characterize the turbulence anisotropy or by: 5.

Note that a “low-Reynolds number” type wall correction is used for the spectral transfer coefficients in the current work that approaches the spectral transfer rates (C 1 = and C 2 = ) used for the decay of isotropic turbulence (Bolotnov et al., a) and uniform shear flow (Bolotnov et al., b).Cited by: 1.

We experimentally investigate scale-to-scale anisotropy from the integral to the dissipative scales in homogeneous turbulence.

Definition of spectral non-equilibrium property in homogeneous isotropic turbulence Presently there exist different definitions of the non-equilibrium turbulence. Some researchers define non-equilibrium as the imbalance between the maximum non-linear energy transfer and the dissipation [8], [12], [13], [14], for example the free-decaying Cited by: PHYSICS OF FLU () Constrained multi-scale turnover Lagrangian map for anisotropic synthetic turbulence: A prioritests Yi Li1,a) and Carlos Rosales2,b) 1School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Sheffield, Sheffield S3 7RH, United Kingdom 2Department of Mechanical Engineering, Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria, Valparaiso, Chile.

Wilcox, D.C. (), "Re-assessment of the scale-determining equation for advanced turbulence models", AIAA Journal, vol. 26, no. 11, pp. Theoretical and experimental investigations have shown that the atmospheric turbulence exhibits both anisotropic and non-Kolmogorov properties.

In this work, two theoretical atmosphere refractive-index fluctuations spectral models are derived for optical waves propagating through anisotropic non-Kolmogorov atmospheric turbulence.

to be correct, then show that the measurements can be accounted for by considering the contribution of the largest scales which the experiments. transfer of energy is caused by the interaction of vortices with similar sizes. There is, however, no explicit length scale in the vorticity equation in physical space.

This suggests that a multi-scale method based on transforms with basis functions that are localized both in Fourier space and physical space is required (e.g. Meneveau. vortex lines by the large-scale field is allowed, which is not the case for the present model.
