Experimental detection of the new phenomenon of turbulent thermal diffusion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The main goal of this communication is to review our recent experimental studies of a new phenomenon of turbulent thermal diffusion which was predicted theoretically in [1]. The essence of this phenomenon is the appearance of a nondiffusive mean flux of particles in the direction of the mean heat flux. This phenomenon causes formation of large-scale inhomogeneities in the spatial distribution of particles that accumulate in the regions of minimum mean temperature of the surrounding fluid.
