Abstract

The settling of (inertial) particles is studied in homogeneous shear turbulence. A drift velocity perpendicular to gravity is measured due to the interplay between the homogeneous shear turbulence and gravity acting on the particles. We introduce a model to predict and understand this phenomenon.
