In this paper, a theory is formulated that describes the heat transfer during the laminar flow of an incompressible fluid within a rigid periodic porous medium. To describe the macroscopic temperature distribution in porous media, the volume average concept is employed to derive the volume...
We examine, with asymptotic analysis and numerical simulation, the iterated stretching dynamics of FENE and Oldroyd-B jets of initial radius r 0 , r 0 , shear viscosity ν, Weissenberg number We , retardation number S , and capillary number Ca . The usual Rayleigh instability stretches the local...
An alternative approach to large-eddy simulation based on approximate deconvolution (ADM) is developed. The main ingredient is an approximation of the nonfiltered field by truncated series expansion of the inverse filter operator. A posteriori tests for decaying compressible isotropic turbulence...
The evolution of the airflow instantaneous structure over an unsteady breaking wave propagating in a group is measured in detail using the digital particle image velocimetry technique. It is found that the boundary-layer over a breaking wave, the steepest in the group, separates at a point close...
The shape of fronts obtained when releasing a cohesionless granular material at the top of a rough inclined plane is experimentally investigated. The measurements are compared with theoretical predictions given by a model based on a depth averaged momentum equation. Good agreement is found when...
The Lagrangian direct-interaction approximation developed previously by the present authors S. Kida and S. Goto, J. Fluid Mech. 345 , 307 (1997) is applied to a passive scalar field in isotropic turbulence. We examine the behavior of solutions to the resultant closure equations for the...
We show that for shear flow of an upper convected Maxwell fluid with small but nonzero slip velocity, an increasing dependence of the slip velocity on the elastic normal stress in the flow direction leads to short wavelength flow instability at sufficiently high Weissenberg number (≳10)....
The near-resonant flow of a fluid over a localized topography is examined. The flow is considered in the weakly nonlinear long-wave limit and is governed by the forced Korteweg–de Vries (fKdV) equation at first order. It is shown that the unidirectional assumption, of right-moving waves only,...
We make a theoretical study of the finger behavior of a simple fluid displacing a non-Newtonian fluid confined in a Hele–Shaw cell. We study the Saffman–Taylor instability when the viscosity of the displaced fluid changes with shear. Our results predict a decrease of the finger width that...
A method for closing the chemical source terms in the filtered governing equations of motion is proposed. Conditional filtered means of quantities appearing in the chemical reaction rate expressions are approximated by assuming that these conditional filtered means are constant for some ensemble...
