Hydraulics of Aerated Flows : Qui Pro Quo ?

  title={Hydraulics of Aerated Flows : Qui Pro Quo ?},
  author={Hubert Chanson},
In turbulent free-surface flows, the deformation of the surface leads to air bubble entrainment and droplet projections when the turbulent shear stress is greater than the surface tension stress that resists to the interfacial breakup. These complex processes at the water-air interface have been the focus of extensive experimental, numerical and theoretical studies over last two decades and this paper reviews the key advancements. It is highlighted that recent progress in metrology enables the… CONTINUE READING
