Particle mixing and reactive front motion in unsteady open shallow flow - Modelled using singular value decomposition

Abstract:

Passive and active tracers are used to examine particle mixing and reactive front dynamics in an open shallow flow of water past a circular cylinder. A quadtree grid based Godunov-type shallow water equation solver predicts the unsteady flow hydrodynamics of the wake behind the cylinder. The resulting periodic flow field consisting of a von Kármán vortex street is decomposed and stored over one oscillatory period using Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). Particles are advected according to th...
