Abstract

Twente Instrumented Particles in Turbulence Experiments (TIPTE): in this project we propose to investigate particle translation and rotation dynamics in homogenous and isotropic turbulence and in strong shear-induced turbulent flow. Instrumented particles have been developed by the group in Lyon and successfully implemented in von-Karman flows. Here, the idea is to employ this technique in the Twente Turbulence Facilities, including the Twente Water Tunnel and the Twente Turbulent Taylor-Couette.
