ESR3 - Interfacial dynamics of aerosols and droplets
  1. Study of particles (aerosols/droplets) in interfacial dynamics either in shear-free mixing layers where the interface is between two different turbulent intensity fields or in cases where the interface will be between a turbulent and a non-turbulent field.
  2. Study of interfaces as they appear in wakes and jets to simulate in the laboratory and the computer the kind of turbulent/non-turbulent interfacial physics which may be found in clouds under certain conditions. In all these flows, entrainment of inertial particles but also the effect of entrainment and of the presence of the interface on turbulence dynamics will be a focus of research.  
Expected Results

A model for how the interface modulates the acceleration field, the behaviour of swarms of droplets/particles.

Planned secondment(s)
  • POLITO (Torino)   Month 19 - 20: comparison with their simulations
  • ENV (Torino)        Month 21: entrainment deduced from Lagrangian measurements

COMPLETE project is the best place to expand my basics in fluid dynamics and turbulence study. I will try my best to contribute to cloud science society from the turbulence point of view.
