Visualization of mixing at density current front with laser-induced fluorescence

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Saline gravity currents are arrested with a specially built facility that can generate an opposite flow having a uniform velocity of the same magnitude as that of the current front. Mixing characteristics are studied with the help of a laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. With the help of video recording and image analysis, mean concentration profiles are measured and the intermittent nature of the mixing process is observed.
