Published Papers - Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (TAM)
This collection contains published articles and papers by faculty in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. Many of these publications were originally issued as a TAM Report (http://www.ideals.illinois.edu/handle/2142/179). In 2006, TAM was merged with the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering to form the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering (MechSE). Please see http://mechse.illinois.edu/ for current research and faculty work.
(Cambridge University Press, 2007)The spatial signatures of retrograde spanwise vortices in wall turbulence are assessed from particle-image velocimetry measurements in the streamwise–wall-normal plane of a zero-pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layer ...
(Cambridge University Press, 2006)The present effort documents the population trends of prograde and retrograde spanwise vortex cores in wall turbulence outside the buffer layer. Large ensembles of instantaneous velocity fields are acquired by particle-image ...
(Cambridge University Press, 2006)We consider the problem of nonlinear oscillatory convection in a horizontal mushy layer rotating about a vertical axis. Under a near-eutectic approximation and the limit of large far-field temperature, we determine the ...
On nonlinear convection in mushy layers. Part 2: Mixed oscillatory and stationary modes of convection (Cambridge University Press, 2004)This paper presents part 2 of a study of nonlinear convection in horizontal mushy layers during the solidification of binary alloys. Part 1 dealt with only the oscillatory modes of convection (Riahi, J. Fluid Mech. vol. ...
On nonlinear convection in mushy layers. Part 1: Oscillatory modes of convection. With Corrigendums (Cambridge University Press, 2002)We consider the problem of nonlinear convection in horizontal mushy layers during the solidification of binary alloys. We analyse the oscillatory modes of convection in the form of two- and three-dimensional travelling ...
