Fluids Seminar: An Optimal Closure for Turbulent Flows

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Simon Thalabard University of Massachusetts at Amherst An Optimal Closure for Turbulent Flows Equilibrium Statistical mechanics ideas have been widely used in the past to account for the large scale 2d organization of atmospheric flows, as caused by the small-scale turbulent motions. Spectacular applications are many, from Kuroshio currents in the Pacific Ocean to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. It is less known, that equilibrium statistical mechanics can also be used to describe the smallest scales of a non-viscous classical turbulent fluid.
