An analytical solution for rapidly distorted turbulent shear flow in a rotating frame
(2006)In this study we apply rapid distortion theory to the case of nonstratified homogeneous turbulence that is sheared in a frame that counterrotates at a rate that matches in magnitude the rotation associated with the mean ...

Article
Linear analysis of generalized turbulent hyperbolic flow in a rotating frame
(2007)We apply inviscid rapid distortion theory to the generalized case of turbulent hyperbolic flow in a rotating frame and investigate the dependence of the evolution of the turbulent kinetic energy on the frame rotation rate. ...

Article
Rapid shear of initially anisotropic turbulence in a rotating frame?
(2007)In the present study, we investigate, using inviscid rapid distortion theory, the evolution of sheared turbulence in a rotating frame as a function of the rotation rate (including stable, transitional, and unstable regimes), ...

Article
A simplified structurebased model using standard turbulence scale equations: computation of rotating wallbounded flows
(2006)Two linear eddyviscosity models, the v2f and kω models, have been combined with an algebraic structurebased algorithm for the evaluation of the Reynolds stresses. This closure was originally designed as an integral ...

Article
The transport of a passive scalar in magnetohydrodynamic turbulence subjected to mean shear and frame rotation
(2007)We consider the transport of a passive scalar under the influence of homogeneous turbulence in a conducting fluid that is exposed to a uniform external magnetic field while being sheared in fixed and rotating frames. The ...
