This paper presents detailed computational results for the dispersion of heavy particles in transitional mixing layers forced at both the fundamental and subharmonic frequencies. The results confirm earlier observations of particle streaks forming in the braid region between successive vortices. A scaling argument based on the idealization of the spatially periodic mixing layer as a row of point vortices shows that the formation of these concentrated particle streaks proceeds with optimum… CONTINUE READING
