Abstract.We show, by direct numerical simulations, that heavy inertial particles (characterized by Stokes number St) in inhomogeneously forced statistically stationary isothermal turbulent flows cluster at the minima of mean-square turbulent velocity. Two turbulent transport processes, turbophoresis and turbulent diffusion together determine the spatial distribution of the particles. If the turbulent diffusivity is assumed to scale with turbulent root-mean-square velocity, as is the case for…

It is shown that escaping minima is possible for inertial particles whose time of equilibration is longer than the time to reach the minimum, which means separation: light particles concentrate in a minimum while heavy particles spread away from it.
