A new method for isolating turbulent states in transitional stratified plane Couette flow
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016-10-26)
We present a new adaptive control strategy to isolate and stabilize turbulent states in transitional, stably stratified plane Couette flow in which the gravitational acceleration (non-dimensionalized as the bulk Richardson ...
Robust identification of dynamically distinct regions in stratified turbulence
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016-10-18)
We present a new robust method for identifying three dynamically distinct regions in a stratified turbulent flow, which we characterise as quiescent flow, intermittent layers and turbulent patches. The method uses the ...
