Symmetry and Dimensionality Reduction of the Pressure Hessian in Turbulent Flows

Mon, Jan 20, 2020, 4:00 pm
Analyzing the fluid velocity gradients in a Lagrangian reference frame provides an insightful way to study the small-scale dynamics of turbulent flows, and further insight is provided by considering the equations in the eigen frame of the strain-rate tensor.
