FLOW article featured in a Focus on Fluids paper
The article 'Turbulent channel ow of dense suspensions of neutrally buoyant spheres’ by F. Picano, W.-P. Breugem and L. Brandt has been featured in a Focus on Fluids paper in J. of Fluid Mechanics.
n a Focus on Fluids By Prof Prosperetti, ' Life and death by boundary conditions ', he writes that Picano et al. have conducted fully resolved numerical simulations of many thousands of spherical particles in a turbulent channel flow with Reynolds number 5600. Their results give a tantalizing demonstration of the vastness of the vistas that this line of research is about to open. With a few others, Picano, BRandt and his colleagues belong to the vanguard of what can well be expected to represent a major component of fluid dynamics research for years to come.
