  1. 1. Modeling of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence

    Author : Ola Widlund; KTH; []
    Keywords : turbulence model; magnetohydrodynamic; mhd; magnetohydrodynamic turbulence; computational fluid dynamics; continuous casting;

    Abstract : Conventional one-point turbulence closures have beenextended with an additional transported scalar for modeling ofmagnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. The new scalar, α ,captures the length scale anisotropy and tendency towardstwo-dimensionality, which is characteristic feature of MHDturbulence, and allows accurate modeling of the Jouledissipation of turbulence.

  2. 2. On the Arctic Boundary Layer : From Turbulence to Climate

    Author : Thorsten Mauritsen; Gunilla Svensson; Joao Teixeira; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric boundary layers; Turbulence; Stable stratification; Gravity waves; Mesoscale motion; Arctic climate; Meteorology; Meteorologi; atmosfärvetenskap; Atmospheric Sciences;

    Abstract : The boundary layer is the part of the atmosphere that is in direct contact with the ground via turbulent motion. At mid-latitudes the boundary layer is usually one or a few kilometers deep, while in the Arctic it is much more shallow, typically a few hundred meters or less. READ MORE

  3. 3. Turbulence modeling of compressible flows with large density variation

    Author : Igor Grigoriev; Arne Johansson; Stefan Wallin; Geert Brethouwer; Stefan Hickel; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbulence; DRSM; EARSM; active scalar; compressible flow; reacting flow; supercritical flow; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : In this study we highlight the influence of mean dilatation and mean density gradient on the Reynolds stress modeling of compressible, heat-releasing and supercritical turbulent flows.Firstly, the modeling of the rapid pressure-strain correlation has been extended to self-consistently account for the influence of mean dilatation.
