Experimental study of forced stratified turbulence

P. Augier
Maria-Eletta Negretti


Recent results have shown that strongly stratified turbulence has a three dimensional dynamic instead of a quasi-two dimensional dynamic conjectured previously. The structures are strongly anisotropic with an aspect ratio scaling like the Froude number lv/lhFh [1]. A direct cascade of energy from large scales to small scales associated with a kh -5/3 horizontal kinetic energy spectrum has been predicted and observed in DNS of forced stratified turbulence when the buoyancy Reynolds number Rt is sufficiently large [2]. In constrast, for small Rt, the flow is dominated by vertical viscous effects even if the Reynolds number is large [3, 4].
