Passive scalar transport by a non-Gaussian turbulent flow in the Batchelor regime
AbstractWe analyze passive scalar advection by a turbulent flow in the Batchelor regime. No restrictions on the velocity statistics of the flow are assumed. The properties of the scalar are derived from the statistical properties of velocity; analytic expressions for the moments of scalar density are obtained. We show that the scalar statistics can differ significantly from that obtained in the frames of the Kraichnan model.
