Upscaling turbulence for better laboratory studies

Turbulence in oceans, in the atmosphere or in industry, is billions of times stronger than in lab experiments. Simply upscaling the lab results is not an option. Theoretically, however, there is a regime of turbulence in which scaling laws apply. Researchers of University of Twente succeeded in reaching this ‘asymptotic ultimate regime’ of turbulence, by introducing roughness at the surface at which turbulent liquid flows. They present their findings in Nature Physics of February 12.
