Turbulence decay rate as a measure of flow dimensionality
The dimensionality of turbulence in fluid layers determines their properties. We study electromagnetically driven flows in finite-depth fluid layers and show that eddy viscosity, which appears as a result of three-dimensional motions, leads to increased bottom damping. The anomaly coefficient, which characterizes the deviation of damping from the one derived using a quasi-two-dimensional model, can be used as a measure of the flow dimensionality. Experiments in turbulent layers show that when...[Show more]
