DNS and laboratory experiments show that the spatial distribution of straining stagnation points in homogeneous isotropic 3D turbulence has a fractal structure with dimension D(s)=2. In kinematic simulations the exponent gamma in Richardson's law and the fractal dimension D(s) are related by gamma=6/D(s). The Richardson constant is found to be an increasing… CONTINUE READING
