c. Program Officer: Michael F. Shlesinger
d. Program Objective:
Understand the fundamental processes which leads
to the generation of small-scale fluctuations. Describe
the scaling properties of turbulence based on features
of fluid structures. Develop theories of turbulence
for universal scaling laws and for applications
e. Significant Results:
• Using direct numerical simulations, we show clear
evidence for the scaling deviation from Kolmogorov
law for all structure functions in the Navier-Stokes flow
• We show that the She-Leveque model give accurate
prdictions about the scaling exponents for the NS flow
as well as for other dynamical system of energy cascade.
• We show that the high Reynolds number liquid Helium
turbulent flows are also characterized by a hierarchy
of structures (S-L model), but with slightly different
8
leading singularity from homogeneous open turbulent flows
• We show that spatially extended chaotic system is
also characterized by a hierarchy of structures predicted
by the She-Leveque model
• We develop a “special relativity” theory for the
study of the multiscaling field of turbulence. This theory
postulates the existence of an invariance property for
any generic scaling field with finite fluctuation range, and
explain therefore the success of the She-Leveque model for
a large variety of systems
