Flows with strongly anisotropic turbulence-dynamic and heat transfer aspects.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Turbulent flows with clearly exposed inverse energy cascades were arranged and studied. The experiments were performed with mercury flows submitted to the influence of external magnetic fields. Turbulence intensity data, and even more energy spectra, indicated the existence of an inverse energy cascade. Heat transfer processes were assessed and strong enhancement of heat transfer was predicted. This prediction was also confirmed experimentally. The results have important implications for nuclear fusion reactors. (A.J.)
