Abstract

The conference presents papers on the measurement and application of coherent structures, the control of the plane mixing layer, competing instabilities in Rayleigh-Benard convection, and an experimental investigation of the two-dimensional inverse energy cascade. Other topics include turbulence peculiarities caused by interference of magnetic fields with the energy transfer phenomena, the turbulent vortex ring and entrainment mechanism, and the application of renormalization group methods to turbulence. Consideration is also given to the stability and transitions of boundary layers, the pseudoturbulent solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, and the effects of inertiogravity waves and rotation on two-dimensional turbulence.
