@article{Klose2019KinematicsOL, title={Kinematics of Lagrangian Flow Separation in External Aerodynamics}, author={B. F. Klose and Mattia Serra and Gustaaf B. Jacobs}, journal={AIAA Journal}, year={2019} }

Kinematic aspects of flow separation in external aerodynamics are investigated in the Lagrangian frame. Specifically, the initial motion of upwelling fluid material from the wall is related to the long-term attracting manifolds in the flow field. While the short-time kinematics are governed by the formation of a material spike upstream of the zero-skin-friction point and ejection of particles in direction of the asymptotic separation line, the trajectories of the fluid tracers are guided by…
