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 ...
Interaction between the Blasius boundary layer and a free surface
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018-03-25)
We consider the steady, supercritical flow of a fluid layer. The layer is bounded above by a free surface and below by a rigid no-slip base. The base is in two parts: the downstream part of the base is stationary, while ...
Vortex-ring-induced stratified mixing: Mixing model
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018-02-25)
The study of vortex-ring-induced mixing has been significant for understanding stratified turbulent mixing in the absence of a mean flow. Renewed interest in this topic has prompted the development of a one-dimensional ...
