1/f noise and long-term memory of coherent structures in a turbulent shear flow
GISSINGER, C.; FAUVE, S.; PEREIRA, Michaël
A shear flow of liquid metal (Galinstan) is driven in an annular channel by counter-rotating traveling magnetic fields imposed at the endcaps. When the traveling velocities are large, the flow is turbulent and its azimuthal component displays random reversals. Power spectra of the velocity field exhibit a 1/ f α power law on several decades and are related to power-law probability distributions P(τ) ∼ τ−β of the waiting times between succes-sive reversals. This 1/ f type spectrum is observed only when the Reynolds number is large enough. In addition, the exponents α and β are controlled by the symmetry of the system : a continuous transition between two different types of Flicker noise is observed as the equatorial symmetry of the flow is broken, in agreement with theoretical predictions.
