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 ...
Self-similar mixing in stratified plane Couette flow for varying Prandtl number
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2017-06-10)
We investigate fully developed turbulence in stratified plane Couette flows using direct numerical simulations similar to those reported by Deusebio et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 781, 2015, pp. 298-329) expanding the range ...
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 ...
