The 3D character of decaying turbulence in a shallow fluid layer

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

Abstract

A canonical laboratory setup to study two-dimensional (2D) turbulence is the electromagnetically driven shallow fluid layer. The argument used here is that whenever the vertical length scale is much smaller than the horizontal length scale the flow is presumed to behave in a 2D fashion with a Poiseuille-like structure in the vertical direction. However, this assumption disregards the presence of a strong non-uniform magnetic field used to electromagnetically force the flow, a vertical component of the Lorentz force, and, most importantly, it oversimplifies the structure of three-dimensional (3D) recirculating flows [1].
