Rotating Turbulence

 

Rotating turbulence is important in a wide range of environmental, industrial and astrophysical flows. The presence of Coriolis and centrifugal forces can strongly affect the behavior of the turbulent flow, and and transport and mixing properties of particles suspended within the flow.

 

There are many open questions in this field, and we are using high-performace computational simulations and theoretical analysis to address these questions, to provide detailed fundamental understanding and to guide the development of simple, predictive models of the problem.
