Title:Introduction to Turbulence, with Bubbles Added
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Andrew Belmonte, Department of Mathematics, Penn State
Turbulence is the complicated flow of a fluid characterized by complicated time dynamics and complicated spatial structures originating in inertial instabilities. In other words, it's complicated! Most mathematical approaches are statistical, although the governing equation is a deterministic partial differential equation (Navier-Stokes). There is a growing list of fluid flows that share properties of turbulence without being inertial, such as Lagrangian mixing and elastic turbulence. I will add another case, resulting from many bubbles rising in a fluid - sometimes known as bubbly turbulence.
