Craske J, Salizzoni P, van Reeuwijk M, The turbulent Prandtl number in a pure plume is 3/5, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, ISSN: 1469-7645

We derive a new expression for the entrainment coefficient in a turbulent plume usingan equation for the squared mean buoyancy. Consistency of the resulting expressionwith previous relations for the entrainment coefficient implies that the turbulent Prandtlnumber in a pure plume is equal to 3/5 when the mean profiles of velocity and buoyancyhave a Gaussian form of equal width. Entrainment can be understood in terms of thevolume flux, the production of turbulence kinetic energy or the production of scalarvariance for either active or passive variables. The equivalence of these points of viewindicates how the entrainment coefficient and the turbulent Prandtl and Schmidt numbersdepend on the Richardson number of the flow, the ambient stratification and the relativewidths of the velocity and scalar profiles. The general framework is valid for self-similarplumes, which are characterised by a power-law scaling. For jets and pure plumes it isshown that the derived relations are in reasonably good agreement with results fromdirect numerical simulations and experiments.

This guide presents an innovative framework to systematically unlock the multiple benefits of city natural infrastructure; thus producing resilient, sustainable and cost-effective solutions. The framework is applicable at a building, neighbourhood and city-scale and is suitable both for new and retrofit developments.

© 2017.Green roofs offer the possibility to mitigate multiple environmental issues in an urban environment. A common benefit attributed to green roofs is the temperature reduction through evaporation. This study focuses on evaluating the effect that evaporative cooling has on outdoor air temperatures in an urban environment. An established urban energy balance model was modified to quantify the cooling potential of green roofs and study the scalability of this mitigation strategy. Simulations were performed for different climates and urban geometries, with varying soil moisture content, green roof fraction and urban surface layer thickness. All simulations show a linear relationship between surface layer temperature reduction δT s and domain averaged evaporation rates from vegetation mmW, i.e. δT s = e W mmW, where e W is the evaporative cooling potential with a value of ∼-0.35 Kdaymm-1. This relationship is independent of the method by which water is supplied. We also derive a simple algebraic relation for e W using a Taylor series expansion.

This paper reports on some recent advances in the understanding of the behaviour of atmosphericinterfacial layers. We focus on those interfaces where a turbulent layer is separated from a quiescentlayer by a relatively strong density gradient and study in particlar the entrainment rate, i.e. the rate withwhich the mixed layer penetrates into the quiescent layer by entraining fluid across the density interface.Making use of massively parallelized supercomputers, we conduct a large number of Direct NumericalSimulations (DNS) for a wide range of conditions and study the impact exerted on the entrainment rate bythe Reynolds number, the Prandtl/(Schmidt) number, and the strength of the density jump represented bythe Richardson number. We study two cases that are relevant for the atmosphere (/ocean), i.e. I] whereturbulence is generated by a surface buoyancy flux, and II] where turbulence is generated by shear (surfacemomentum flux). Of course with DNS one cannot simulate the high Reynolds numbers encountered in atmosphericcontexts, but present computer resources do allow us to faithfully simulate the classical laboratoryexperiments on these situations and even achieve Reynolds numbers more than ten times larger.
