Project

An in-house 2-spot LDA for improved turbulence modelstheory

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Background

Jets occur frequently in nature and are also technologically important in industry. Prominent examples include jet engines, sprays of various kinds and even the jet streams we observe on a global scale. They are also an important tool for understanding turbulence on a fundamental level and to evaluate applicability and accuracy of turbulence models.

This project focuses on fine-scale jet turbulence measurements using a combination of 2 parallel LDA systems. With two separate measuring volumes, one can measure spatial correlations with high accuracy and directly test the validity of our understanding since almost a century – the Kolmogorov theory of turbulence.


Proposed projects

The project can be conducted by 1-2 BSc or MSc students. You will gain a unique in-depth understanding of the physics of turbulence which will be of great value in virtually any industrial or academic discipline of fluid mechanics.

LDA-measurements - We have developed our own in-house system for laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) measurements (see picture below), which will during the coming months be extended to simultaneous measurements at two points separated in space.

Mapping the initial developing region: Using LDA, the developing region can be mapped and described for providing the necessary knowledge for improving turbulence models.

The project is practical and research oriented, but has immediate application for turbulence theory and in particular turbulence modeling, which is widely used in industry.
