# Effect of the Reynolds number on turbulence kinetic energy exchanges in flows with highly variable fluid properties

@article{Dupuy2019EffectOT, title={Effect of the Reynolds number on turbulence kinetic energy exchanges in flows with highly variable fluid properties}, author={Dorian Dupuy and Adrien Toutant and Françoise Bataille}, journal={Physics of Fluids}, year={2019} }

Spatial and spectral energy exchanges associated with the turbulence kinetic energy per unit mass, or half-trace of the velocity covariance tensor, are studied in an anisothermal low Mach number turbulent channel flow. The temperatures of the two channel walls are 293 K and 586 K. This generates a strong temperature gradient in the wall-normal direction. The effect of the temperature gradient on the energy exchanges is investigated using two direct numerical simulations of the channel, at the…
