Flow properties, such as vorticity
and strain rates, are obtained for the entire region, and other properties, such as mean turbulence and other higher-order flow statistics, can be calculated.
Dietrich and Lin (1994) noted the influence of Caribbean eddies on the vorticity
of the LC and eddy shedding.
Using the 3-D data, we determined the position of the finlets during a critical portion of the stroke cycle when, as predicted by the vorticity
enhancement hypothesis described above, the finlets may redirect water flow towards the caudal fin vortex.
Type three had no degree of vorticity
or degree of melt.
The intrusions of the western branch of the slope current into the canyon, have been explained in terms of the conservation of potential vorticity
by Maso er al.
Evolution, functional perfection, insect flapping flight, suboptimality, vorticity
The reverse process--the generation of counterclockwise vorticity
and downslope transport of it--appears in the off-shelf phase of the tidal current.
A mesocyclone is a storm-scale (2-10 km in diameter) cyclonically rotating vortex, usually with a vertical vorticity
on the order of [10.
The temporal and spatial characteristics of rear velocity field and vorticity
field are contrasted to the PIV testing data as well.
is coupled with high turbulence intensity, in excess of TI = 45% , and low axial velocity.
I'll add here that meteorologically we often see all sorts of microscale circulations along outflow boundaries, like vertical vorticity
centers that further concentrate the winds and cause strong shear patterns.
5L] denotes the absolute vorticity
in the flow, averaged spanwise at x = 0.
