Turbulence & Instabilités

Responsable : Florence Raynal

Les activités de l’équipe, à caractère plutôt fondamentales, concernent l’analyse des instabilités hydrodynamiques, la transition laminaire/turbulence, les écoulements turbulents, et les écoulements à petite échelle.

Effect of particle inertia on the alignment of small ice crystals in turbulent clouds

K. Gustavsson, M. Z. Sheikh, A. Naso, A. Pumir & B. Mehlig

Small nonspherical particles settling in a quiescent fluid tend to orient so that their broad side faces down because this is a stable fixed point of their angular dynamics at small particle (...)
