Re-examining the thermal mixing layer with numerical simulations

Abstract

The question of whether a temperature mixing layer evolves in a self-similar manner is of importance in developing and validating theories about scalar mixing. The simplicity of the flow encourages the thought that it is self-similar, but several laboratory experiments at moderate Peclet numbers have found inconsistencies with self-similar behavior. The… (More)
