Turbulence and Coherent Structures pp Cite as. Dynamical coherent structures are isolated regions where the vorticity is large and has a characteristic form and which have their own dynamical life and could exist in isolation Hussain One approach to analyzing the dynamics of CS is to consider how typical forms of these vortex structures interact with each other and with the ambient shear flow.

Eddies, streams, and convergence zones in turbulent flows
The low-pressure vortex analysis is performed for the study of dynamical properties of tubular vortices in turbulence. An automatic tracking scheme of arbitrarily chosen vortices is developed which makes it easier to examine the history of individual vortices. The low-pressure vortices have typically two distinct regions of high vorticity, that is, the tubular central core and surrounding spiral arms. The vorticity in these two regions is perpendicular to each other. It is observed that both the length of fluid lines and the area of fluid surfaces increase, in average, exponentially in time with growth rates of 0.
The emergence of characteristic (coherent?) motion in homogeneous turbulent shear flows
In fluid dynamics , an eddy is the swirling of a fluid and the reverse current created when the fluid is in a turbulent flow regime. Fluid behind the obstacle flows into the void creating a swirl of fluid on each edge of the obstacle, followed by a short reverse flow of fluid behind the obstacle flowing upstream, toward the back of the obstacle. This phenomenon is naturally observed behind large emergent rocks in swift-flowing rivers. In fluid mechanics and transport phenomena , an eddy is not a property of the fluid, but a violent swirling motion caused by the position and direction of turbulent flow. In , scientist Osborne Reynolds conducted a fluid dynamics experiment involving water and dye, where he adjusted the velocities of the fluids and observed the transition from laminar to turbulent flow, characterized by the formation of eddies and vortices. This phenomenon is described by Reynolds number , a unit-less number used to determine when turbulent flow will occur. Conceptually, the Reynolds number is the ratio between inertial forces and viscous forces.
