Direct Numerical Simulation of an Accelerating Channel Flow
Direct Numerical Simulation of a linearly accelerating channel flow starting from an initially statistically steady turbulent flow has been performed. It is shown that the response of theExpand

Turbulence in transient channel flow
Direct numerical simulations (DNS) are performed of a transient channel flow following a rapid increase of flow rate from an initially turbulent flow. It is shown that a low-Reynolds-number turbulentExpand

FUNCTIONAL MORPHOLOGY AND HYDRODYNAMICS OF PLESIOSAUR NECKS: DOES SIZE MATTER?
ABSTRACT —Plesiosaurs are an enigmatic, diverse extinct group of Mesozoic marine reptiles well known for their unique body plan with two pairs of flippers and usually an elongated neck. The long neckExpand

DNS study of a pipe flow following a step increase in flow rate
Direct numerical simulation (DNS) is conducted to study the transient flow in a pipe following a near-step increase of flow rate from an initial turbulent flow. The results are compared with those ofExpand

A Comparative Study of Turbulence in Ramp-Up and Ramp-Down Unsteady Flows
DNS of a turbulent channel flow subjected to a step change in pressure gradient are performed to facilitate a direct comparison between ramp-up and ramp-down flows. Strong differences are foundExpand

Transition of Transient Channel Flow with High Reynolds Number Ratios
TLDR
Large-eddy simulations of turbulent channel flow subjected to a step-like acceleration have been performed to investigate the effect of high Reynolds number ratios on the transient behaviour of turbulence. Expand

Influence of a k-type Roughness on the Behaviour of Turbulence in an Unsteady Channel Flow
Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) have been carried out for a spatially fully developed turbulent channel flow with one smooth wall and one k-type rough-wall surface to study the influence of aExpand
