The Colour of Turbulence and the Attached Eddy Hypothesis

Grant number: DP180100447 | Funding period: 2018 - 2020



This project aims to progress understanding of wall-bounded turbulence. These turbulent fluid flows are ubiquitous in nature and in engineering systems, directly affecting dispersion in the atmosphere and the energy consumption of land, sea and air vehicles. The understanding of these turbulent flows has been limited by a lack of verified theoretical models for the structure of wall turbulence. By combining unprecedented experiments with a novel dynamical systems approach, this project will enable development of effective turbulence control strategies, enhancing productivity in a wide range of applications. The findings of the research will enable models with predictive capability to design ..
