Collapse of generalized Euler and surface quasigeostrophic point vortices

Physical Review E - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Gualtiero Badin and Anna M. Barry

Point-vortex models are presented for the generalized Euler equations, which are characterized by a fractional Laplacian relation between the active scalar and the stream function. Special focus is given to the case of the surface quasigeostrophic (SQG) equations, for which the existence of finite-t...

Physical Review Fluids - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Kyupaeck Jeff Rah, Chandru Dhandapani, and Guillaume Blanquart

Author(s): JiaCheng Hu and Sean D. Peterson

Droplet fragmentation using a mesh

Physical Review Fluids - Tue, 08/28/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Dan Soto, Henri-Louis Girard, Antoine Le Helloco, Thomas Binder, David Quéré, and Kripa K. Varanasi

Factors governing atomization of droplets impacting a mesh, starting with the elementary unit of a single hole, are investigated. It is shown how this process can be used to generate finely controlled sprays with micrometric droplet sizes and low kinetic energy, as is critical for agricultural applications.

Wetting over pre-existing liquid films

Physical Review Fluids - Tue, 08/28/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Hannu Teisala, Clarissa Schönecker, Anke Kaltbeitzel, Werner Steffen, Hans-Jürgen Butt, and Doris Vollmer

Wetting over liquid films governs important phenomena but is poorly understood. A water front moving over a micrometer-thick film of silicone oil on a solid surface is imaged. Capillary suction in the meniscus induces thinning of the oil film and a wavelike film profile with local backflows.

Passive swimming of a microcapsule in vertical fluid oscillation

Physical Review E - Mon, 08/27/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Takeru Morita, Toshihiro Omori, and Takuji Ishikawa

The artificial microswimmer is a cutting-edge technology with applications in drug delivery and micro-total-analysis systems. The flow field around a microswimmer can be regarded as Stokes flow, in which reciprocal body deformation cannot induce migration. In this study, we propose a microcapsule sw...

Tumbling dynamics of inertial inextensible chains in extensional flow

Physical Review E - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Christophe Henry, Giorgio Krstulovic, and Jérémie Bec

This paper investigates the effect of inertia on the dynamics of elongated chains to go beyond the overdamped case that is often used to study such systems. For that purpose, numerical simulations are performed considering the motion of freely jointed bead-rod chains in an extensional flow in the pr...

Fragmentation of magnetic particle aggregates in turbulence

Physical Review Fluids - Fri, 08/24/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): H. M. De La Rosa Zambrano, G. Verhille, and P. Le Gal

Aggregation and fragmentation are frequently observed in industrial and natural systems. In an experimental study, an initially large aggregate of magnetic particles is broken by the turbulent fluctuations of a flow. The size of the resulting clusters is measured using three-dimensional reconstruction.

Author(s): J. Muñoz, J. Arcos, O. Bautista, and F. Méndez

The dispersion coefficient of a passive solute into a pulsatile electroosmotic flow with slippage at the microcapillary wall is derived. We found that the slip condition can enhance the dispersion coefficient by up to two orders of magnitude over the no-slip condition.

The effects of wall thermal conditions on the canonical case of an impinging shock wave interacting with a turbulent boundary layer is an under-explored topic. Direct numerical simulations are used to study the flow properties of supersonic shock/boundary-layer interactions with distinct wall thermal conditions and shock angles.

Author(s): Evan H. Anders, Benjamin P. Brown, and Jeffrey S. Oishi

A mechanism for rapidly achieving thermal relaxation in high-Pe convective simulations is studied in the context of Rayleigh-Bénard convection. It achieves statistically similar states to standard timestepping and saves up to an order of magnitude in computational time for the problems studied.

Extremes of the pinch-off location and time in a liquid column by an accelerating solid sphere

Physical Review Fluids - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): Seong Jin Kim, Seungho Kim, and Sunghwan Jung

When a dog accelerates its tongue to lap water, a water column is created and pinches off close to the tongue. Physical experiments and a theoretical model of accelerating a solid sphere from a liquid bath elucidate the mechanism of the liquid-column formation and pinch-off.

Reduced mixing time in stirred vessels by means of irregular impellers

Physical Review Fluids - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 11:00

Author(s): S. Başbuğ, G. Papadakis, and J. C. Vassilicos

Fractal impellers can lead to a considerably shorter mixing time compared to regular impellers. This is explained by the differences in characteristics of flow and scalar fields. Moreover, a mathematical model is proposed which can approximate the decay rate of the passive scalar fluctuations.

Implementation of a bypass laminar-to-turbulent transition is explored. We show that our method, by bypassing linear exponential growth, can induce high mixing capacity localized turbulence in a laminar channel flow at low Re. An on-demand mixing enhancement in laminar channel flow is proposed.
