Turbulence in thick fluid layers
This thesis presents the experimental study of turbulence in fluid layers of finite depths i.e. away from the ideal quasi-2D approximation. The development and implementation of a two colour Particle Image Velocimetry/Particle Tracking hybrid is presented along with a defocused PIV diagnostic for measuring full 3D components of the velocity field. A parametric study in electromagnetically driven flows in a single and double layer configuration is presented. It is shown that as the layer depth...[Show more]
