Modeling Turbulent Scalar Mixing as Enhanced Diffusion Academic Article uri icon


  • An enhanced diffusion model is proposed for scalar mixing in turbulence. Using a Lagrangian frame analysis and a model simplification the enhancement in the diffusivity due to the velocity field is estimated. The model explains many of the characteristics of turbulent scalar mixing observed in direct numerical simulations. 1994, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
