Contributions to hydrodynamics: vortex motion in homogenuous and stratified media
MetadataShow full item record
The research activities at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in the general area of hydrodynamics concern vortex breakdown, harmonically-oscillating flow about smooth and rough bluff bodies, wave forces on offshore structures, hydroelastic oscillation of cables in steady and oscillating flow, impulsively-started flow about various types of bodies, discrete vortex analysis of separated time dependent flows, and the rise and demise of trailing vortices in homogeneous and density-stratified media. This article focuses on the effect of ambient turbulence and density stratification on the migration of trailing vortices.
