14 2.5.Data generalization: similar to "universal" profiles within forests

15 Conclusion 1: there are many similar features for (at least mean quantities of)
flows within differing obstruction layers. A uniform theory may be possible. 3.1. The terms in use: Layer with distributed force [J. Hunt] Too mathematically… Canopy Forest canopy, etc. Too narrow… High roughness [Cermak e.a.-1971] Roughness sublayer [Mestayer] Porous medium In filtration theories… Penetrable obstruction Not correct… Penetrable roughness [W. Brutsaert] Easily Penetrable Roughness, EPR An adjective allowing some mathematical operations like additivity of forces

16 3.2. Fluid Mechanics' point of view: from 'small' to 'tall' and penetrable roughnesses
h<<H h ~ (0,1 – 0,3)H h ~ (0,3 – 0,9)H ? Sand roughness Motion and exchange processes within the roughness are of most interest. Besides, motion of the roughness elements may be practically important, too. Height of the roughness Is neglected Almost all Fluid Mechanics case problems may be generalized in order to learn properties of the (Easily) Penetrable Roughnesses

17 2. 2. What happens within the PR?
Kind permission for using this photo given by Prof. J.E.Cermak (Colorado University) is gratefully acknowledged Bulk results of the intensive vorticity: ♪ a mean force to each local portion of the fluid ♪ intensive mixing to be accounted via exchange coefficients μT etc.

18 3.1. A main conclusion from the experiments: source terms to be included into equations that govern the process U(x,z) and u(x,z) account for motion of the carrying media (air or water) and the carried media (elements of the EPR) n(x,z) or s(x,z) account for density of the resistant elements, i.e. elements of the EPR; they thus represent an architectonics of the penetrable roughness

19 General mathematical model
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20 Boundary Layer Approach;
Model verification by a sequence of sub-models: EPR made up of immobile elements. Boundary Layer Approach; Is it always valid? Is valid? Boundary conditions: Conjugation conditions:

21 4.1. Numerical results: general structure of the unrestricted EPR flow

26 Length Lx of the initial region
♪ Different curve behavior for small Re ♪ For large Re an approach is observed to the limit case already found from Boundary Layer Approx [Schlichting] Conclusion: Boundary Layer Approach is valid for large Re

27 (D) Flow enters a duct with a finite EPRs (penetrable backward facing steps)
Vortical motion behind "penetrable steps" h=0,3, l=1 in a duct flow Re=100 depending on A=100 (above) or A=10 (below) ♪ there is no vorticity for easily penetrable EPR (small A); ♪ the vorticity is only appearing for A~10; ♪ there is an intensive vorticity for A~100; ♪ another calculation method is required if one needs precise knowledge within the PR with large A. More details: Gayev, Shikhaliev …

28 Conclusion. Three regimes depending on frequency may be observed:
(F) Pulsating flow in a duct with EPRs biological applications are possible Solution has been obtained in an analytical form using complex numbers. There is an animation graphical program… (a) Smooth walls in the duct (Richardson' phenomenon) (b) EPRs near walls in the duct (opposite currents are larger) Conclusion. Three regimes depending on frequency may be observed: ♪ at slow pulsations, ω<5, the flow resembles the Puaseule flow at each time moment; ♪ at frequent pulsations, ω>50, a phase shift occur, and the opposite currents become larger.

34 Conclusions from the 'constant viscosity' models

35 9. Turbulence in the penetrable layers a number of experiments in various obstruction layers were carried out… [Kouwen; Sherenkov,Bennovitsky] In water flumes… [Raupach,Finnigan e.a.] In forests… In models of urban settlements… [Meroney;Savory; etc] [Gayev e.a.] In spraying coolers… [Meroney;Raupach;Gayev,Savory; etc.] In wind tunnels…

36 9. Some more data for turbulence

38 9.2. Turbulence intensity profiles over the EPR
Contours of normalised mean velocity (U/Uoo) at X=10 rows (D-Canopy) ♪ U'-profiles are very distinct at the EPR beginning ♪ U'-profiles become more united far into the EPR


40 Bulk properties of the flow

41 9.3. Theoretical modeling of the EPR turbulence (a) Algebraic closures: sufficient for most calculations ~~~~ Within the EPR Outside the EPR Comparison with Allen's measurements Calculation for a vegetated channel flow [Gayev,Wenka,Rodi]. More details: Bennovitsky,Gayev

42 Well, EPR flows are similar in terms of mean (overaged) properties
Well, EPR flows are similar in terms of mean (overaged) properties. Are they so similar, i.e. have common features in term of the turbulence? Bulge (i.e. sec. max.) problem in forest flows…

43 9.4. 'Fine structure' of the turbulence
It might have been expected that (1) vortices are proportional to the 'grid size' within the EPR, and (2) dissipate to small scales over the EPR… It is suggested to examine this expectation by a spectrum measurements.

44 Spectra over a smooth surface Spectra in some points within D-wake
Measurements in Surrey university WT [Gayev,Savory] Features are known: 1. Energy containing vortices 1<f<200 Hz; 2. Inertial sub-layer E~f^(-5/3) for 20<f<500 Hz; 3. Dissipation E~f^(-4) for 700<f<3 000 Hz; 4. Vortices calm down with the height z. 1. Energy of the vortices is much larger; 2. Peaks on spectrum curves are present for some points in the wake. 3. Again, vortices calm down with the height.

45 Spectra within an extended easily penetrable roughness array
Measurements in Surrey university WT [Gayev,Savory] (2) Behind 20 rows (1) Behind 5 rows

46 Spectral appearance of the EPR turbulence
Spectrum curves almost over the surface with the 'tall trees' h=70 mm, on the elevation z=2 mm taken as a reference level

47 Spectrum measurements within the EPR
Spectrum curves almost coincide for all the elevations 0 < z <1h: here z=40 mm

48 Spectrum curves almost coincide for all the elevations 0 < z <1h
z=100 mm z=60 mm Spectrum curves almost coincide for all the elevations 0 < z <1h Conclusion: turbulence is rather homogeneous within the EPR although the EPR is significantly inhomogeneous.

49 Spectrum measurements over the EPR fetch
z=160 mm z=140 mm Spectrum curves began rise up over the EPR, z > h =70 mm … contrary to the case of a smooth surface. ! ! ! ???

50 Spectrum measurements over the EPR
z=230 mm z=180 mm Spectrum curves rise up till the elevation z ~1,5h – 3h

51 Then, spectrum curves fall down like it were over the smooth surface…
z=260 mm z=200 mm Then, spectrum curves fall down like it were over the smooth surface…

52 For more high elevations, spectrum curves continue to fall down…
z=280 mm z=220 mm For more high elevations, spectrum curves continue to fall down…

53 For more highest elevations, a spike appears on spectrum curves …
z=320 mm z=240 mm For more highest elevations, a spike appears on spectrum curves …

54 …and the peaks continue rising for next elevations.
z=480 mm z=300 mm …and the peaks continue rising for next elevations.

55 What the reason of such behavior of the vortices?
z=540 mm z=480 mm Vortices dissipate for only elevations z=6h (5 rows) and z=8h (20 rows) . What the reason of such behavior of the vortices?

56 Finnigan’s e. a. image of coherent vortices over the PR [Ann. Rev
Finnigan’s e.a. image of coherent vortices over the PR [Ann. Rev. Fluid Mech., 2000, v.32] Vorticity within and over the EPRs is an interesting subject for further investigations.

57 Source/sink terms as a mean for capturing PR features
In momentum equations: … there is only one possibility given by dimensional analysis, that is the force term.

58 For the turbulent kinetic energy
For the dissipation rate

59 How should these terms look like?
Dimensional analysis for the turbulent kinetic energy – two variants Dimensional analysis for the dissipation rate – four variants … it might be worth to examine all of these terms to express peculiarity of various possible PR structures…

60 Main conclusions A variety of problems that look out from the first glance as different ones may be treated, in fact, as problems of a penetrable roughness (i.e. canopy, porous layer etc) flows. The EPR model given here allows investigation of PRs differing in nature and in structure, e.g. constructed from immovable, movable, multi speed and, may be, waving, flexible etc. elements. An approach for distinguishing the “initial” and “main” regions of the canopy (=EPR) flow was suggested along with some analytical estimation formulas. Approaches based on continuous media models capture important averaged flow features but more sophisticated models are required for predicting EPR flow turbulence characteristics. The latter may be done by including source/sink terms into corresponding equations. PR flows should be, because of their novelty, investigated further and deeper. It should be thought over how the 'useful features' of the PR flows discovered by meteorologists and hydrologists may be utilized in engineering science and technology.

61 Prospective problems EPR models for "waving" and flexible elements
EPR models for shallow water flows with the water surface affected by the EPR Models for SQS constructed with 're-freshen' gaps And much more to give job for many meteorologists, hydraulics, wind engineers, engineering people and those of other expertise area…
