Transport of energy in dissipative advection phenomena

2003 Journal of Mathematical Physics  
A study of the distribution of energy among the different scales is performed for several systems in fluid mechanics, including the Navier-Stokes, magnetohydrodynamics and active scalars equations. It is found that all these systems possess a common structure which enables us to deduce how the energy introduced by the forcing is transferred to the scales present in the flow. It is also shown that in special cases an energy cascade will occur. The limits of this method are also considered.
