Turbulence stripe in transitional channel flow with/without system rotation
2010 (English)In: 7th IUTAM Symposium on Laminar-Turbulent Transition: Proceedings of the seventh IUTAM Symposium on Laminar-Turbulent Transition, Stockholm, Sweden, 2009, Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2010, 421-426 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We report direct numerical simulations and experiments conducted in two types of plane channel flows-plane Poiseuille flow and plane Couette flows without/ with system rotation-considering the subcritical-transition regime with using large aspect-ratio computational domains and channels. Both flows give rise to coexisting laminar and turbulent equilibrium regions in the form of oblique stripes, which are tilted by a certain angle with respect to the mean flow. When subjected to a stabilizing rotation, the Couette turbulence is locally quenched and exhibits the stripe pattern as similar to non-rotating cases. In this context, the turbulence stripe can be seen as an intrinsic phenomenon in the reverse transition in a channel flow.
