Structure of the temperature field in a flow over heated waves

Structure of the temperature field in a flow over heated waves Liquid crystal thermometry (LCT) was used to quantify temperature fields in a flow over resistively heated waves and assess the effect of the large-scale longitudinal structures that were previously obtained in the velocity field for an isothermal flow (A. Günther and P. Rudolf von Rohr, submitted article, 2002). The wavelength Λ was 10 times larger than the amplitude, and the considered Reynolds numbers were 725 and 3300, defined with the bulk velocity and the half-channel height. A constant heat flux was imposed at the wavy bottom wall. For the first time, LCT was used to determine the fluid temperature in a wall-bounded flow with heat transfer. The dominant spanwise scale obtained from a proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) of the fluid temperature field above an uphill location of the wavy wall was 1.5Λ. It agrees well with the one previously obtained for a decomposition of the streamwise velocity. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
