Asymptotic solutions of Hopf's equation for turbulent chemical reactions

Authors


Abstract

Hopf's formalism is extended to chemically reactive turbulent systems, and weak mixing and convective mixing asymptotic forms are considered. The former recovers Corrsin's isotropic decay law for an isothermal first-order, irreversible reaction; the latter extends Hopf's result to equipartition of mechano-chemical energy.
