Titre/Title :
Lamination and mixing in canonical flows driven by Lorentz body forces.

Contact :
Jean-Paul Thibault

Résumé/Abstract :
Body forces offer unique possibilities to manipulate an engineer flows with tailor made properties. Such forcing can be used either for fundamental research or for flow control applications. In fact, the high level of control of such experiments (actually 2D, low speed) permits the experimental (and numerical) investigation of the Lagrangian acceleration fields.

In this seminar, laminar canonical flows driven by Lorentz body forces will support our discussion. Some fundamental aspects and new insights about lamination and lamination rate will be discussed before addressing mixing issues.
