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...
