Final Report - 3DZZI (Three-dimensional structure of stratified turbulence)

Project ID: 234782
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report for the 3DZZI project. The objective of the project was to investigate the linear and nonlinear evolutions of the ZZI in complex stratified flows. The report reveals that the research has been carried out through theoretical and numerical studies and with new designed laboratory experiments and measurement techniques. The report also shows that in the axisymmetric case they were able to solve the dispersion relation analytically and two types of solutions were found: neutral wave solutions for large vertical wavenumbers (or small unstable stratification) and unstable solutions for small vertical wavenumbers. This is a new interesting result since in the stably stratified case only neutral wave solutions are possible. Images and graphs are included.
