Emergence of Multiscaling in a Random-Force Stirred Fluid

Emergence of Multiscaling in a Random-Force Stirred Fluid We consider the transition to strong turbulence in an infinite fluid stirred by a Gaussian random force. The transition is defined as a first appearance of anomalous scaling of normalized moments of velocity derivatives (dissipation rates) emerging from the low-Reynolds-number Gaussian background. It is shown that, due to multiscaling, strongly intermittent rare events can be quantitatively described in terms of an infinite number of different “Reynolds numbers” reflecting a multitude of anomalous scaling exponents. The theoretically predicted transition disappears at Rλ≤3. The developed theory is in quantitative agreement with the outcome of large-scale numerical simulations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review Letters American Physical Society (APS)
