In 3D turbulent flows, the direct cascade of energy, characterized by a flux through scales, ε, is a strong source of irre- versibility. This irreversibility manifests itself in the asymmetry between negative and positive kinetic energy differences along particle trajectories. In particular, it is observed that the odd moments of the power of...

We investigate the response of energy flux in isotropic turbulence to step-function like perturbation in external forcing at large length scales. From both physical experiments and direct numerical simulations, we measured the evolution of the Eulerian velocity structure functions, such as $D_{LL}(r)$, $D_{NN}(r)$, before and after the...

We report on measurements of the ultimate-state transition in turbulent Rayleigh-B\'enard convection obtained in a large facility known as the ``Uboot of G\"ottingen" and using pressurized sulfur hexafluoride as the convecting fluid. We found that the transition occurs over a range of $Ra$ which becomes more narrow as $\Gamma$ increases, ranging...

We report on measurements of the mean-flow Reynolds number ReU and the rms fluctuation Reynolds number ReV in turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection as a function of the Rayleigh number Ra for 4 x 1011 < Ra < 2 1014 and Pr ' 0:8. Both can be described by the same power law with an effective exponent = 0:44, in agreement with predictions for ReU...

We report experimental results for the temperature variance 2(z) and the corresponding frequency spectra P(f) in turbulent Rayleigh-Bénard convection (RBC) in a cylindrical sample of aspect ratioT= D/L = 1:00 (D = 1:12 m is the diameter and L = 1:12 m the height). The measurements were conducted in the Rayleigh-number range 1011 < Ra < 1:35 1014...

Thermally driven turbulent convection under the influence of global rotation is ubiquitous in nature. Well known examples are the outer convective shell of our Sun and the outer liquid core of the Earth. Trying to understand the underlying dynamics of such flows is highly challenging, not only because of the enormous range in length- and time...

Using the unique capabilities of the Variable Density Turbulence Tunnel at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, we investigated virtually homogeneous and isotropic grid turbulence over a wide range of Reynolds numbers, $Re = UM/\nu$, between $10^4$ and $5\cdot 10^6$. The choice of pressurizable Sulfur Hexafluoride as a...

We here present the results of a measurement campaign at the Umweltforschungsstation Schneefernerhaus (UFS) research station at an elevation of 2650 m, on the mountain top of Zugspitze, Germany. We measured the three-dimensional motion of the water droplets inside a turbulent cloud using three high-speed stationary cameras. We show the...

We report the observations from turbulent thermal Rayleigh-Benard convection experiment with a two-phase liquid-vapor binary mixture. Evaporation/condensation processes in a turbulent convection are accompanied by the formation of cloud like structures above the liquid-vapor interface. We also found that a liquid film condensation on the...
