Eulereuler anisotropic gaussian mesoscale simulation of homogeneous clusterinduced gasparticle turbulence
Abstract
An Euler–Euler anisotropic Gaussian approach (EEAG) for simulating gas–particle flows, in which particle velocities are assumed to follow a multivariate anisotropic Gaussian distribution, is used to perform mesoscale simulations of homogeneous clusterinduced turbulence (CIT). A threedimensional Gauss–Hermite quadrature formulation is used to calculate the kinetic flux for 10 velocity moments in a finitevolume framework. The particlephase volumefraction and momentum equations are coupled with the Eulerian solver for the gas phase. This approach is implemented in an opensource CFD package, OpenFOAM, and detailed simulation results are compared with previous Euler–Lagrange simulations in a domain size study of CIT. Here, these results demonstrate that the proposed EEAG methodology is able to produce comparable results to EL simulations, and this momentbased methodology can be used to perform accurate mesoscale simulations of dilute gas–particle flows.

Anomalous, nonGaussian transport of charged particles in anisotropic magnetic turbulence
The transport of energetic particles in a mean magnetic field and in the presence of anisotropic magnetic turbulence is studied numerically, for parameter values relevant to astrophysical plasmas. A numerical realization of magnetic turbulence is set up, in which the degree of anisotropy is varied by changing the correlation lengths l{sub x}, l{sub y}, and l{sub z}. The ratio {rho}/{lambda} of the particle Larmor radius {rho} over the turbulence correlation length {lambda} is also varied. It is found that for l{sub x},l{sub y}>>l{sub z}, and for {rho}/{lambda} < or approx. 10{sup 2} transport can be nonGaussian, with superdiffusion along themore » 
Reynolds stresses and onedimensional spectra for a vortex model of homogeneous anisotropic turbulence
Homogeneous anisotropic turbulence consisting of a collection of straight vortex structures is considered, each with a cylindrically unidirectional, but otherwise arbitrary, internal vorticity field. The orientations of the structures are given by a distribution [ital P] of appropriate Euler angles describing the transformation from laboratory to structurefixed axes. Onedimensional spectra of the velocity components are calculated in terms of [ital P], and the shellsummed energy spectrum. An exact kinematic relation is found in which volumeaveraged Reynolds stresses are proportional to the turbulent kinetic energy of the vortex collection times a tensor moment of [ital P]. A class of largeeddy simulationmore » 
Scalar and tensor spherical harmonics expansion of the velocity correlation in homogeneous anisotropic turbulence
The representation theory of the rotation group is applied to construct a series expansion of the correlation tensor in homogeneous anisotropic turbulence. The resolution of angular dependence is the main analytical difficulty posed by anisotropic turbulence; representation theory parametrises this dependence by a tensor analogue of the standard spherical harmonics expansion of a scalar. As a result, the series expansion is formulated in terms of explicitly constructed tensor bases with scalar coefficients determined by angular moments of the correlation tensor.Cited by 7 
Leith diffusion model for homogeneous anisotropic turbulence
Here, a proposal for a spectral closure model for homogeneous anisotropic turbulence. The systematic development begins by closing the thirdorder correlation describing nonlinear interactions by an anisotropic generalization of the Leith diffusion model for isotropic turbulence. The correlation tensor is then decomposed into a tensorially isotropic part, or directional anisotropy, and a tracefree remainder, or polarization anisotropy. The directional and polarization components are then decomposed using irreducible representations of the SO(3) symmetry group. Under the ansatz that the decomposition is truncated at quadratic order, evolution equations are derived for the directional and polarization pieces of the correlation tensor. Here, numericalmore »Cited by 1
