In preparation for the Fête de la Science 2023 ( the french science vulgarization week that takes place each year in fall) during the summer break I made in a small wind tunnel. I had some fun in the garage playing the experimentalist, and I was amazed by the beauty of fluid dynamical patterns.
Laboratory: Unité de Mécanique de Lille J. Boussinesq, Univ. Lille Villeneuve d’Ascq, Cité Scientifique
Supervisors: Enrico Calzavarini et Stefano Berti (Univ. Lille, ULR 7512 – Unité de Mécanique de Lille – Joseph Boussinesq (UML))

In collaboration with Dr. Tristan Biard and Laget Manon (LOG UMR 8187) we propose an analysis of field measurements of deep sea particle sinking fluxes.
Duration: 6 months
Internship main location : Laboratoire d’Océanologie et Géosciences (UMR 8187) – Wimereux – France
Internship description and application rules: M2_internship_proposal
Visualization of the velocity field in a moderately turbulent Kolmogorov flow (spatial resolution 128^3). The flow is sustained by a steady unidirectional force (here along the X axis) with a monochromatic sinusoidal dependence proportional to sin(k Y). The sinusoidal profile is clearly reflected in the large scale velocity field in the X-Y planes (visible at the beginning and at the end of the movie).
