Using stratification to mitigate end-effects in quasi-Keplerian Taylor-Couette flow
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016-02-24)
Efforts to model accretion disks in the laboratory using Taylor–Couette flow apparatus are plagued with problems due to the substantial impact the end-plates have on the flow. We explore the possibility of mitigating the ...
Convective mass transfer from a submerged drop in a thin falling film
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016-01-25)
We study the fluid mechanics of removing a passive tracer contained in small, viscous drops attached to a flat inclined substrate using thin gravity-driven film flows. A convective mass transfer establishes across the ...
Particle organization after viscous sedimentation in tilted containers
(American Institute of PhysicsPhysics of Fluids, 2016-07-19)
A series of sedimentation experiments and numerical simulations have been conducted to understand the factors that control the final angle of a static sediment layer formed by quasi-monodisperse particles settling in an ...
