Stratified flows, universal in environmental and geophysical purposes, are char acterized by means of the difference of fluid density within the vertical path which could bring about qualitative and quantitative differences of the circulation styles through buoyancy . volatile stratification (dense water/air above mild water/air) raises the ver tical blending via iteration of convective cells whereas good stratification usually suppresses vertical blending of mass and momentum. however, a stably stratified fluid can help inner waves, instabilities and turbulence that play a severe position in shipping and combining. the sea is predominantly topic to sturdy stratification which, below exter nal excitation, helps an atmosphere of inner waves that could then holiday and generate turbulence. Wind forcing, currents and convective plumes are different resources of turbulence within the ocean. within the ocean, stratified turbulence mediates the upward delivery of backside water, foodstuff, chemical and organic species, and pollution. within the surroundings, stratification impacts the shipping of pollution published at flooring point, a severe challenge being the thermal inversion in city parts that motives the stagnation of pollution and small particulate (PM2.5 to PMIO) within the reduce a part of the atmospheric boundary layer. In structures, strat ification governs the circulate of air and warmth in normal air flow systems.

As above discussed, periodic conditions are well suited for flow fields that exhibit homogeneity along a direction. The use of such condition imphes that the flow field repeats identically along the direction of periodicity and, thus poses a limitation on the largest scale of the fiow that can be simulated. It has been shown (see Moin and Mahesh (1998)) that a domain is large enough to simulate the significant large scales of the fiow when the two-point correlation of the velocity field decays within half domain in the direction of homogeneity.
1994). where Rif is the flux Richardson number (the definition is given in Chapter 3 of the present lecture notes). 33. An explicit model for the SGS eddy diffusivity was not consider. 5. This value is supported by inertial subrange data, although recent simulation have pointed out that PTT increases with the stratification (see for example the discussion of the previous section). 4 is the von Karman constant, ZQ is the length-scale of the surface roughness and Ao an empirical length-scale that helps in the evaluation of the filter-scale.
Computational grid for the investigation of the flow around a sphere and iso-lines of pressure field. , (2000). discretization formulas for the computation of all the metric terms. An alternative strategy for dealing with complex geometry, still holding the advantages of using Cartesian geometry is the use of the recently developed immersed boundary technique Fadlun et al. (2000). According to such technique,boundary body forces allow the imposition of the boundary conditions on a given surface not coinciding with the computational grid (Fig.
