Project summaryThere are a lot of books and publications dealing with shear turbulent mixing. Being a result of Rayleigh-Taylor and Richtmyer-Meshkov instabilities, gravitational turbulent mixing is a new direction associated with the problems of ICF, and astrophysics. In the last few decades this direction has been vigorously advanced. The proposed book focuses on this direction.
The proposed monograph employs the approach based on application of simple semiempirical models of KE-type using two equations. Peculiarity of the proposed book is in combination of analytical approach with numerical simulation based on the codes of different complexity.
Models of KE-type provide satisfactory results for a wide range of problems. Main attention in monograph is given to substantiating applicability of the proposed models. For this purpose the properties are examined and compared thoroughly with the results of experiments conducted both for liquids and gases.
The following publication of the book will reflect the up-to-date level of research into the problem of gravitational mixing from the various viewpoints: theoretical, numerical, and experimental.
The book will be useful for both researchers studying the problem under consideration and students and post-graduates only starting their way in science.
Potential role of foreign collaborators
Consultations and problem discussions are planned with Dr. D. Youngs (Great Britain), R. Cheret (France), V.Rupert, K.Mickailyan, S.Haan from LLNL (USA), H.Takabe from Osaka University (Japan), L. Houas (France).
The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.
ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
