Optical Density Measurements and Analysis for Single-Mode Initial-Condition Buoyancy-Driven Mixing
Volume 7: Fluid Flow, Heat Transfer and Thermal Systems, Parts A and B
The Texas A&M water channel experiment is modified to examine the effect of singlemode initial conditions on the development of buoyancy-driven mixing (Rayleigh-Taylor) with small density differences (low-Atwood number). Two separated stratified streams of $ 5 C difference are convected and unified at the end of a splitter plate outfitted with a servo-controlled flapper. The top (cold) stream is dyed with Nigrosine and density is measured optically through the Beer-Lambert law. Quantificationdoi:10.1115/imece2010-38206 fatcat:g3llvowlrfa5lkj3g7zmeyfpwe
