Instead of using blue particles to fill in holes, we interpolate the vorticity and colors of the new particles. By the end of this simulation, the total field strength and circulation has not increased significantly while the particles have increased from 16,000 to 17,500.

Adaptive fluid solvers have been built in a grid-based fashion, for which desired areas of refinement must be known beforehand. This is not always possible, and further, these methods can be slow for turbulent flows where small time-stepping is required. Existing vortex methods can address this issue, where vorticity is transported by particles, ca...

The coupling between turbulent flow physics and barchan dune geometry is important to dune migration, morphology of individual dunes, and the morphodynamics of merging and separating proximal dunes. Large-eddy simulation was used to model turbulent, inertial-dominated flow over a series of static barchan dune configurations. The dune configurations...

Large-eddy simulations were used to investigate the supercritical aerodynamics of a square cylinder with rounded corners in comparison with those in the subcritical regime. First, the numerical methods, especially the dynamic mixed model, were validated on the basis of their prediction of supercritical flows past a circular cylinder. Then, the supe...
