We investigate the double diffusive convection between two parallel plates with either no-slip or free-slip boundary conditions. Direct numerical simulations have been conducted systematically for a series of control parameters. Salt fingers can be observed for both boundary conditions and all parameters explored. Compared to the no-slip case,...

In Taylor-Couette flow, the radius ratio ($\eta = r_i/r_o$) is one of the key parameters of the system. For small $\eta$, the asymmetry of the inner and outer boundary layer becomes more important, affecting the general flow structure and boundary layer characteristics. Using high-resolution particle image velocimetry we measure flow profiles...

We report experimental results on the Lagrangian dynamics of finite-size light particles in turbulence. Using an orthogonal camera setup and 3D particle tracking, we study the velocity and acceleration statistics of rigid light spheres in a water tunnel with nearly homogeneous and isotropic turbulence. The Reynolds number (ReY) is varied from...

In this talk we focus on the velocity fluctuations in highly turbulent Taylor-Couette flow for the case of stable flow (constant rotation) and for decaying flow. Turbulent flows are generally characterized by the range of scales of their fluctuations, and a statistical description of the flow is often done by calculating the correlations of...
