In this work, we present numerical experiments aimed at dynamically establishing the separate role of the inner and outer cycles on the scalar transport in the configuration of a temporally evolving boundary layer. The experiments are based on the study of the evolution of passive scalars driven by velocity fields where inner and outer cycles are alternately suppressed. Two different approaches are implemented. In the first, the discrimination between inner and outer cycle activities is based on the scale dimension of the involved motions. The second instead, discriminates on the basis of the distance from the wall of the turbulent motions. The two approaches depict the same scenario. Both the inner and outer cycles appear to be autonomous and, in a sense, independent, since their dynamics remain qualitatively unaltered despite facing two different conditions. The outer cycle faces a free boundary at the top and simply rescales according to what is supplied by the inner cycle. The inner cycle, on the other hand, resides between the wall and the outer region. As a result, the reduction of the scalar fluxes in the outer region due to the suppression of the outer cycle causes a damping in the near-wall region activities.

Abstract

In this work, we present numerical experiments aimed at dynamically establishing the separate role of the inner and outer cycles on the scalar transport in the configuration of a temporally evolving boundary layer. The experiments are based on the study of the evolution of passive scalars driven by velocity fields where inner and outer cycles are alternately suppressed. Two different approaches are implemented. In the first, the discrimination between inner and outer cycle activities is based on the scale dimension of the involved motions. The second instead, discriminates on the basis of the distance from the wall of the turbulent motions. The two approaches depict the same scenario. Both the inner and outer cycles appear to be autonomous and, in a sense, independent, since their dynamics remain qualitatively unaltered despite facing two different conditions. The outer cycle faces a free boundary at the top and simply rescales according to what is supplied by the inner cycle. The inner cycle, on the other hand, resides between the wall and the outer region. As a result, the reduction of the scalar fluxes in the outer region due to the suppression of the outer cycle causes a damping in the near-wall region activities.
