Words From The Editor

Dear Colleague,

We have pleasure sending you this second issue of the Eucass Science News Bulletin. We hope that it helps you find relevant information useful to you, easier and faster than through normal channels. We also hope that you will draw our attention to novel published materiel either from your own group or from others. In so doing, you are enhancing your own visibility, stimulating the life of your colleagues and improving the productivity and vitality of our community.

Very soon, more sources of information will be tapped and reported to you for a broader service

Make sure to report your own published innovative results and those of others to Stella Sauvan at the special email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Kind regards

Reynolds Number Influence on Dual-Bell Transition Phenomena
S. B. Verma, R. Stark, and O. Haidn
Pages 602-609

An experimental investigation was conducted to study the Reynolds number influence on dual-bell transition behavior for tests inside a high-altitude simulation chamber. For the range of nozzle supply pressures tested, the nozzle Reynolds number is seen to gradually decrease from a relatively high value (of the order of 10^7 for tests in sea-level atmospheric conditions) toward the transitional range (lower side of 10^6 for tests inside the high-altitude chamber). This influences...

A comparative study of different sets of variables for solving compressible and incompressible flows
Guillermo Hauke, Thomas J.R. Hughes
Pages 1-44

A globally conservative Galerkin/least-squares formulation which attains correct shock structure is developed for any choice of variables. Only the choice of entropy variables satisfies exactly the discrete Clausius-Duhem inequality without any dissipative mechanisms, whereas for the rest of the variables, artificial diffusion is required to guarantee entropy production. The limit of the formulation is well defined for entropy variables...

Fully implicit adaptive method using discontinuous Galerkin finite elements for high speed flows
R. Becker; K. Gokpi; E. Schall; D. Trujillo
Pages 222-23

...we present automatic and effective mesh refinement techniques for discontinuous Galerkin finite elements methods (DGFEMs) applied to high speed inviscid flows, and based on the CONCHA finite element Library. CONCHA is a C++ software designed for the simulation of complex flow problems...

Fast and accurate PIV computation using highly parallel iterative correlation maximization
F. Champagnat; A. Plyer; G. Le Besnerais; B. Leclaire; S. Davoust; Y. Le Sant
Pages 1169-1182

Our contribution deals with fast computation of dense two-component (2C) PIV vector fields using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). We show that iterative gradient-based cross-correlation optimization is an accu- rate and efficient alternative to multi-pass processing with FFT-based cross-correlation. Density is meant here...

Dynamics of m = 0 and m = 1 modes and of streamwise vortices in a turbulent axisymmetric mixing layer
S. Davoust; L. Jacquin; B. Leclaire
Pages 408-444

The near field of a Reynolds number Re 0 = 2.14 × 10^5 and low-Mach-number cylindrical jet has been investigated by means of a high-speed stereo PIV setup that provides the spatio-temporal velocity field in a transverse plane, two diameters downstream of the jet exit. Proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and...
