  • Experimental Eulerian and Lagrangian investigations in simple turbulent flows 

    Ayyalasomayajula, Sathyanarayana (2007-02-07)
    This thesis consists of three parts. The first part consists of a study of high-Reynolds number, homogeneous, isotropic turbulence in wind tunnels which has been strained via an axi-symmetric contraction. The effect ...
  • Tornadoes in a Microchannel 

    Perez, Carlos; Posner, Jonathan (2008-10-10)
    The addition of non-dilute volume fraction of dispersed colloids can significantly alter a fluid?s electrical conductivity and permittivity. Under the application of an external electric field, particles in non-dilute ...
  • Vortices around Dragonfly Wings 

    Kweon, Jihoon; Choi, Haecheon (2009-10-16)
    Dragonfly beats its wings independently, resulting in its superior maneuverability. Depending on the magnitude of phase difference between the fore- and hind-wings of dragonfly, the vortical structures and their interaction ...
