  • Bagchi, Prosenjit; Balachandar, S. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2002-10)
    A direct numerical simulation (DNS) is used to study the effect of a freestream isotropic turbulent flow on the drag and lift forces on a spherical particle. The particle diameter is about 1.5 to 10 times the Kolmogorov ...

  • Phillips, W.R.C. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-11)
    Langmuir circulations in the open ocean typically form in an environment of surface waves and a shear current, and a mechanism which exploits these features and leads to shear-aligned longitudinal vortices much like Langmuir ...

  • Pushkin, Dmitri O.; Aref, Hassan (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-07)
    A theory of stationary particle size distributions in coagulating systems with particle injection at small sizes is constructed. The size distributions have the form of power laws. Under rather general assumptions, the ...

  • Boyland, Philip L.; Stremler, Mark A.; Aref, Hassan (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2002-10)
    Topological techniques are used to study the motions of systems of point vortices in the infinite plane, in singly-periodic arrays, and in doubly-periodic lattices. Restricting to three vortices with zero net circulation, ...
