Pair dispersion over an inertial range spanning many decades

  title={Pair dispersion over an inertial range spanning many decades},
  author={Frank W. Elliott and Andrew J. Majda},
New numerical results on scalar pair dispersion through an inertial range spanning many decades are presented here. These results are achieved through a new Monte Carlo algorithm for synthetic turbulent velocity fields, which has been developed and validated recently by the authors @J. Comput. Phys.117, 146 ~1995!#; this algorithm is capable of accurate simulation of a Gaussian incompressible random field with the Kolmogoroff spectrum over 12–15 decades of scaling behavior with low variance… CONTINUE READING
