Spiral-like structures in the passive scalar fields of typical fluid flows are examined with special reference to their rate of accumulation. The study was motivated in the particular context of the Kolmogorov capacity of such structures and their role in potentially dominating the measured dimension of iso-scalar contours in fully turbulent flows, but it may have broader implications. A specific conclusion is that the structures occurring in these flows are better modelled by a logarithmic… CONTINUE READING
