Physicists Uncover New Dynamical Framework for Turbulence

Physicists at Georgia Tech have proven — numerically and experimentally — that turbulence in fluid flows can be understood and quantified with the help of a small set of special solutions that can be precomputed for a particular geometry, once and for all.

New Geometric Model Improves Predictions of Fluid Flow in Rock

Supercomputer validates mathematical approach for describing geological features. The Science Deep beneath the Earth’s surface, oil and groundwater percolate through gaps in rock and other geologic material. Hidden from sight, these critical resources pose a significant challenge for scientists seeking…
