Abstract:

Using deissler’s method we have studied the decay of temperature fluctuations in homogeneous turbulence before the final period in rotating system and have considered correlations between fluctuating quantities at two and three point. The equations for two and three point correlation in a rotating system is obtained and the set of equations is made to determinate by neglecting the forth order correlation in comparison to the second and third order correlations. For solving the correlation equations are converted to spectral form by taking their Fourier transform. Finally integrating the energy spectrum over all wave numbers, the energy decay law of temperature fluctuations in homogeneous turbulence before the final period in presence of coriolis force is obtained in the form T2=A (t-t0)-3/2 + B exp(-2εmij Ωm)(t – t0)-5 where, T2 is the total “energy” (the mean square of the temperature fluctuations), t is the time and A and t0 are constants determined by initial conditions. The constant B depends on both initial conditions and the fluid Prandtl number. For large times the last term becomes negligible, leaving the -3/2 power decay law for the final period previously found by Corrsin (1951).
