Abstract

This paper presents a framework for analyzing salient patterns (vortex structures) in the velocity fields of turbulent fluid flows. Vortices are modeled as rotational motions in the velocity fields and concentrations in the corresponding vorticity fields. A pointwise linear model is then built to approximate the kinematics of the flow field. Locally, the vector fields are analyzed in terms of fluid motion and singular patterns. The regions of vortex structures are then extracted by identifying those dominated by rotational motion or those of focus-type singularity. In addition to this, 2D vortices, as a special case, are detected by searching regions of vorticity concentrations. The algorithm is applied to both 2D and 3D, experimental and computational turbulent flows.
