Fluid Mixing: Direct Numerical Simulation - Part I of II

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
New Hampshire 3

For Part II, see MS46.

Fluid mixing is as common as the cream in your coffee. It is important to oil/gas pipeline flow, dispersal of contaminants in the environment, the production of petroleum, and the design of capsules for intertial confinement fusion. The speakers in the first session will focus on direct numerical simulation (DNS) of mixing. Because mixing is typically multiscale, simulation is difficult and validation is essential. Validation is based on comparison to theory (See part II)) and experimental measurement.
