Expressions are derived to relate the instantaneous pressure force on a flapping wing to the velocity field on a plane at the trailing edge and on a highly localized region around and near the wing, valid when the vortex sheet is thin. In its more practical version, the formalism is applicable to...
Using a recently developed filtering technique, we study the spatiotemporal properties of the scale-to-scale fluxes of energy and enstrophy in a weakly turbulent experimental quasi-two-dimensional flow. Although these spectral properties vary in time and space, we show that they persist along the...
