Turbulence in the intracluster medium: Simulations, observables, and thermodynamics

Mohapatra, Rajsekhar; Sharma, Prateek


We conduct two kinds of homogeneous isotropic turbulence simulations relevant for the intracluster medium (ICM): (i) pure turbulence runs without radiative cooling and (ii) turbulent heating + radiative cooling runs with global thermal balance. For pure turbulence runs in the subsonic regime, the rms density and surface brightness (SB) fluctuations vary as the square of the rms Mach number (Mrms). However, with thermal balance, the density and SB fluctuations (δSB/SB) are much larger. These...[Show more]
