Numerical investigation of the near-field flow-structures produced by a pitched and skewed vortex generating jet.
MetadataShow full item record
A large-eddy simulation of a velocity-ratio (VR = 1:0), pitched and skewed vortex generating jet issuing into a turbulent boundary layer (Red = 2000) is presented. As the jet issues from the orifice, an asymmetrical counter-rotating vortex pair is produced, consisting of a strong primary vortex and a weaker secondary vortex. The secondary vortex quickly dissipates to leave the primary vortex, which persists farther downstream. The primary vortex replaces the near-wall region with higher momentum fluid, and is shown to be associated with improved skin friction downstream of the jet. This increase in skin friction has been previously shown to be associated with improved resistance to boundary-layer separation.

Granular vortices: Identification, characterization and conditions for the localization of deformationTordesillas, A.; Pucilowski, S.; Lin, Qun; Peters, J.; Behringer, R. (2016)We relate the micromechanics of vortex evolution to that of force chain buckling and, on this basis, formulate the conditions for strain localization in a continuum model of dense granular media. Using the traditional ...

Secondary Flow Vortex Structures and Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Fluid Flow through Curved Elliptical DuctsChandratilleke, Tilak; Nadim, Nima (2014)Fluid flow through curved ducts is essentially characterised by the secondary flow effects due to duct curvature and cross-sectional flow geometry. Such flows produce vortex structures making the fluid behaviour vastly ...
