3D Interface Models for Rayleigh-Taylor Problems

When two fluids of varying density are subjected to a Rayleigh-Taylor instability, a vorticity distribution is created along the material interface, whose sharp peaks initiate the Kelvin-Helmholtz

A Comparison of Interface Growth Models Applied to Rayleigh–Taylor and Richtmyer–Meshkov Instabilities

Sophisticated numerical models that contain fluid interfaces rely upon interface evolution models to approximate the transition to turbulence near interfaces, in the presence of Rayleigh–Taylor

A fast dynamic smooth adaptive meshing scheme with applications to compressible flow

This work proposes a novel and fast smooth adaptive meshing algorithm for multi- D simulations requiring mesh adaptivity, and presents adaptive-simulation speed-up results for two classical but extremely challenging gas dynamic problems: the Noh shock implosion problem, and the (highly unstable) Rayleigh-Taylor (RT) problem.

Dependence of Enstrophy Transport and Mixed Mass on Dimensionality and Initial Conditions in the Richtmyer–Meshkov Instability Induced Flows1

This paper presents a comparative study of the enstrophy budget and mixed mass between two- and three-dimensional flows induced by Richtmyer–Meshkov instability (RMI). Specifically, the individual

Interfaces in incompressible flows

The motion of both internal and surface waves in incompressible fluids under capillary and gravity forces is a major research topic. In particular, we review the derivation of some new models

Models for Damped Water Waves

Some new weakly nonlinear asymptotic models describing viscous waves in deep water with or without surface tension effects are derived.

It is found that, for the same density ratio, the RT bubble has slightly larger asymptotic curvature than the RM bubble, and the vortex sheet strength of the RM interface has different behavior than that of the RT interface.

Two vortex-blob regularization models for vortex sheet motion

Evolving vortex sheets generally form singularities in finite time. The vortex blob model is an approach to regularize the vortex sheet motion and evolve past singularity formation. In this paper, we

Numerical simulation of gravity waves

Abstract We present a new spectral method to simulate numerically the waterwave problem in a channel for a fluid of finite or infinite depth. It is formulated in terms of the free surface elevation η
