    • Effect of Initial Conditions on the Compound Shear- and Buoyancy-driven Mixing 

      Placette, Beth (2012-10-19)
      The effect of initial conditions in combined shear- and buoyancy- driven mixing was investigated through the use of an implicit large eddy simulation code under active development at Los Alamos National Laboratory and Texas ...
    • Effect of initial conditions on the development of Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities 

      Peart, Freeman Michael (2009-05-15)
      There are two coupled objectives for this study of buoyancy-driven turbulence. The first objective is to determine if the development of a Rayleigh-Taylor (RT) mixing layer can be manipulated experimentally by altering the ...
    • Effects of Single Mode Initial Conditions in Rayleigh-Taylor Turbulent Mixing 

      Doron, Yuval (2011-02-22)
      The effect of single mode initial conditions at the interface of Rayleigh-Taylor(RT) mixing are experimentally examined utilizing the low Atwood number water channel facility at Texas A&M. The water channel convects two ...
    • Experimental investigation of a stratified buoyant wake 

      Kraft, Wayne Neal (Texas A&M University, 2004-11-15)
      An existing water channel facility at Texas A&M University is used to experimentally study a stratified, buoyant wake. A cylindrical obstruction placed at the centerline of a developing Rayleigh-Taylor mixing layer serves ...
    • An investigation of the influence of initial conditions on Rayleigh-Taylor mixing 

      Mueschke, Nicholas Jay (Texas A&M University, 2006-04-12)
      Experiments and direct numerical simulations (DNS) have been performed to examine the e¤ects of initial conditions on the dynamics of a Rayleigh-Taylor unsta- ble mixing layer. Experiments were performed on a water channel ...
    • On the dynamics of Rayleigh-Taylor mixing 

      Ramaprabhu, Praveen Kumar (Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
      The self-similar evolution of a turbulent Rayleigh-Taylor (R-T) mix is investigated through experiments and numerical simulations. The experiments consisted of velocity and density measurements using thermocouples and ...
    • On the Effect of Initial Conditions on Rayleigh-Taylor Mixing 

      Kuchibhatla, Sarat Chandra (2014-12-16)
      An experimental investigation of the effects of Initial Conditions (ICs) on Rayleigh-Taylor Instability (RTI) is performed using theWater Channel facility at Texas A&M University. Hot and cold water (with a temperature ...
