The physical structure of convoluted surfaces and fluid interfaces in turbulence is quantified by a distribution of geometric scales. A scale measure suitable for multidimensional surfaces and a one-to-one correspondence between the scale distribution and the coverage dimension are used to analyze the scale dependence of the interfacial geometry. Application to concentration interfaces in a turbulent mixing flow indicates that the statistical laws exhibited at the small scales can be quantified… CONTINUE READING
