Numerical Study of Bubble and Particle Motion in a Turbulent Boundary Layer using Proper Orthogonal Decomposition
There are many practical problems in environmental and industrial flows which involve the transport of bubbles or particles in a turbulent boundary layer. Recent experimental work (Ushijima & Perkins 1995) has suggested that the instantaneous structure of the flow in the boundary layer plays a dominant role in determining the motion of particles and bubbles.
