A recent theoretical development in the understanding of the small-scale structure of Navier-Stokes turbulence has been the proposition that the scales ηn(R) that separate inertial from viscous behavior of many-point correlation functions depend on the order n and on the typical separations R of points in the correlation. This is of fundamental significance in itself but it also has implications for the scaling behaviour of various correlation functions. This dependence has never been observed…

Dissipation scales and anomalous sinks in steady two-dimensional turbulence.

This paper shows that the fusion rules hypothesis, combined with nonperturbative locality, dictates the location of the boundary separating the inertial range from the dissipation range, and illustrates the significance of viewing inertial ranges as multi-dimensional regions where the fully unfused generalized structure functions of the velocity field are self-similar.

SHELL MODELS OF ENERGY CASCADE IN TURBULENCE

▪ Abstract We review the most important theoretical and numerical results obtained in the realm of shell models for the energy-turbulent cascade. We mainly focus here on those results that had or

Locality and stability of the cascades of two-dimensional turbulence.

It is shown that both the enstrophy cascade and the inverse energy cascade are local in the sense of nonperturbative statistical locality and it has been shown that statistical stability with respect to forcing applies unconditionally for the inverseEnergy cascade.
