报告内容简介:
The dynamics of the velocity gradient tensor plays a  crucial role in our understanding of turbulent flows. I will discuss recent  numerical and experimental results concerning the perceived velocity gradient  tensor, constructed with the help of 4 points (a tetrad). This tensor depends  on the overall size of the tetrad, thus permitting to study the properties of  the flow as a function of scale. I will in particular consider the statistical  properties, as well as the dynamical properties of the velocity gradient tensor,  in relation to the dynamics of the shape of the tetrad. These properties shed  some new light on the intriguing preferential alignment between vorticity and  the eigenvector, corresponding to the intermediate eigenvalue of the strain。
