The structure and origin of confined Holmboe waves
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018-08-10)
Finite-amplitude manifestations of stratified shear flow instabilities and their spatio-temporal coherent structures are believed to play an important role in turbulent geophysical flows. Such shear flows commonly have ...
Detrainment of plumes from vertically distributed sources
(SpringerEnvironmental Fluid Mechanics, 2016-11-22)
We present experimental results demonstrating that, for the turbulent plume from a buoyancy source that is vertically distributed over the full area of a wall, detrainment qualitatively changes the shape of the ambient ...
Diapycnal mixing in layered stratified plane Couette flow quantified in a tracer-based coordinate
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2017-07)
The mixing properties of statically stable density interfaces subject to imposed vertical shear are studied using direct numerical simulations of stratified plane Couette flow. The simulations are designed to investigate ...
