Research Fellow, Engineering

A majority of engineering and environmental flows occur over surfaces that are heterogeneous, i.e., they contain spatial variations in roughness and/or topography at a wide range of scales. When a turbulent flow evolves over such surfaces, it may exhibit unusual physical properties, depending on the relationship between the dominant length-scales of the surface and that of the flow. Often, this surface heterogeneity leads to the emergence of secondary currents (SCs)that may extend up to the entire depth of the flow and manifest as “time-averaged” streamwise vortices accompanied by low- and high-speed regions.
