Evidence for Forcing-Dependent Steady States in a Turbulent Swirling Flow
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
We study the influence on steady turbulent states of the forcing in a von Karman flow, at constant impeller speed, or at constant torque. We find that the different forcing conditions change the nature of the stability of the steady states and reveal dynamical regimes that bear similarities to low-dimensional systems. We suggest that this forcing dependence may be applicable to other turbulent systems.

SAINT-MICHEL, Brice; DUBRULLE, Bérengère; MARIÉ, Louis; RAVELET, Florent; DAVIAUD, François (2014)We present a detailed study of a global bifurcation occuring in a turbulent von Kármán swirling flow. In this system, the statistically steady states progressively display hysteretic behaviour when the Reynolds number is ...
RAVELET, Florent; DUBRULLE, Bérengère; DAVIAUD, François; RATIÉ, Pierre-Arthur (APS, 2012)We provide experimental and numerical evidence of in-blades vortices in the von Karman swirling flow. We estimate the associated kinematic α-effect tensor and show that it is compatible with recent models of the von Karman ...
ZAARAOUI, Abdelkader; RAVELET, Florent; MARGNAT, Florent; KHELLADI, Sofiane (Elsevier, 2013)A prototype device for measuring the volumetric flow-rate by counting vortices has been designed and realized. It consists of a square-section pipe in which are placed a two-dimensional bluff body and a strain gauge force ...
Influence of global rotation and Reynolds number on the large-scale features of a turbulent Taylor–Couette flow RAVELET, Florent; DELFOS, René; WESTERWEEL, Jerry (AIP - American Institute of Physics, 2010)We experimentally study the turbulent flow between two coaxial and independently rotating cylinders. We determined the scaling of the torque with Reynolds numbers at various angular velocity ratios Rotation numbers and ...
Influence of design parameters on the global performances of low-speed counter-rotating axial-flow fans WANG, Juan; RAVELET, Florent; BAKIR, Farid (2014)The present work aims at experimentally investigating the effects of some parameters on the performances of a counter-rotating stage, and on the instationary flow between the rotors. Three counter-rotating fans, which have ...
