We present experimental Lagrangian statistics of finite sized, neutrally bouyant, particles transported in an isotropic turbulent flow. The particle's diameter is varied over turbulent inertial scales. Finite size effects are shown not to be trivially related to velocity intermittency. The global shape of the particle's acceleration probability density(More)

Turbulent transport of material inclusions plays an important role in many natural and industrial situations. Being able to accurately model and predict the dynamics of dispersed particles transported by a turbulent carrier flow, remains a challenge. One critical and difficult point is to develop models which correctly describe the dynamics of particles(More)
Genetic markers (isozymes), in addition to the traits recommended by the UPOV convention, have been used in France since 1989 to characterize the maize inbred lines submitted to registration. In the years 1989. 1990 and 1991, a total of 974 inbreds has been described according to this procedure. Relationships between genetic markers were investigated and(More)
ISSR amplification was evaluated for its applicability to strawberry varietalidentification. Eighteen primers based on various di- tri- or tetra- SSR motifswith 3 or 0 5'-selective nucleotides for anchoring were screened against thestrawberry genome by agarose gel electrophoresis. PCR conditions wereoptimised to obtain high quality patterns. Five primers(More)
Mixing and transport in turbulent flows-which have strong local concentration fluctuations-are essential in many natural and industrial systems including reactions in chemical mixers, combustion in engines and burners, droplet formation in warm clouds, and biological odor detection and chemotaxis. Local concentration fluctuations, in turn, are intimately(More)
Analysis by SDS-PAGE of the majority of hexapoid triticales (× Triticosecale) (134 cultivars) grown in Europe allowed to identify 40 alleles at seven loci: Glu-A1, Glu-B1, Glu-R1, Gli-R2, Glu-B2, Glu-A3 and Glu-B3. Glu-B1 and Glu-B3 loci were the most polymorphic with 9 alleles at each locus. 95 allelic combinations were observed including 71 specific for(More)
We report measurements of the spreading rate of pairs of tracer particles in an intensely turbulent laboratory water flow. We compare our measurements of this turbulent relative dispersion with the longstanding work of Richardson and Batchelor, and find excellent agreement with Batchelor’s predictions. The distance neighbour function, the probability(More)
We report measurements of the Lagrangian velocity structure functions of orders 1 through 10 in a high Reynolds number (Taylor microscale Reynolds numbers of up to R(lambda) = 815 ) turbulence experiment. Passive tracer particles are tracked optically in three dimensions and in time, and velocities are calculated from the particle tracks. The structure(More)
