  • Bagchi, Prosenjit; Balachandar, S. (American Institute of Physics, 2003-11)
    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 1.5–10 times the Kolmogorov ...

  • Bagchi, Prosenjit; Balachandar, S. (Cambridge University Press, 2004)
    The interaction of an isolated spherical particle with an isotropic turbulent flow is considered using direct numerical simulations (DNS). The particle Reynolds number is varied from about 50 to 600 and the particle ...

  • Zeng, Lanying; Balachandar, S.; Fischer, Paul (Cambridge University Press, 2005)
    We perform direct numerical simulations of a rigid sphere translating parallel to a flat wall in an otherwise quiescent ambient fluid. A spectral element method is employed to perform the simulations with high accuracy. ...
