@article{Lvov1998ImprovedSM, title={Improved shell model of turbulence}, author={Victor S. L’vov and Evgeniy V. Podivilov and Anna Pomyalov and Itamar Procaccia and Damien Vandembroucq}, journal={Physical Review E}, year={1998}, volume={58}, pages={1811-1822} }

We introduce a shell model of turbulence that exhibits improved properties in comparison to the standard (and very popular) Gledzer, Ohkitani, and Yamada (GOY) model. The nonlinear coupling is chosen to minimize correlations between different shells. In particular, the second-order correlation function is diagonal in the shell index and the third-order correlation exists only between three consecutive shells. Spurious oscillations in the scaling regime, which are an annoying feature of the GOY…

We discuss a theoretical framework to define an optimal subgrid closure for shell models of turbulence. The closure is based on the ansatz that consecutive shell multipliers are short-range…

We present a model of hydrodynamic turbulence for which the program of computing the scaling exponents from first principles can be developed in a controlled fashion. The model consists of N suitably…

Inverse energy cascade in nonlocal helical shell models of turbulence.

- PhysicsPhysical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics
- 2015

A modified version of helical shell models for turbulence with nonlocal triadic interactions is introduced, showing that there exists a class of models that exhibits a statistically stable inverse energy cascade, in close analogy with that predicted for the Navier-Stokes equations restricted to the same helical interactions.
