Lagrangian Particle Kinematics in Three-Dimensional Convection
Various incompressible stationary velocity fields can be classified using the concept of toroidal-poloidal decomposition for divergenceless vector fields. In particular, classification and visualization are made for some basic flows applying to Rayleigh-Bénard convection.
