Total Deformation and its Role in Heavy Precipitation Events Associated with Deformation-Dominant Flow Patterns

Abstract

In this paper, it is elucidated that the total deformation (TD), defined as the square root of the sum of squared stretching deformation and squared shearing deformation, is an invariant independent of the coordinate system used. An idealized flow field is then constructed to demonstrate the confluence effect of a non-divergent and irrotational deformation… (More)
