The paper “Dynamic fluid sloshing in a one-dimensional array of coupled vessels” co-authored by Ying Huang and Matt Turner has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Fluids. The paper identifies multiple (n+1)-fold 1:…:1 resonances in a system of N coupled vessels in a 1D array, with each vessel containing a sloshing fluid. The vessels are coupled to their neighbours by linear springs with the first and final vessels attached to solid walls by linear springs. The paper investigates the natural frequencies for the general N vessel system but highlights particular numerical results for the cases N=2, 3 and 8. See the figure below for a schematic of the N vessel system.
Two papers co-authored by Jan Gutowski have appeared in the Journal of High Energy Physics in 2017. The paper “Dynamical symmetry enhancement near N=2, D=4 gauged supergravity horizons“, co-authored with T. Mohaupt (Liverpool) and G. Papadopoulos (Kings College London), was published in March, link here. The paper “Calibrated entanglement entropy“, co-authored with I. Bakhmatov (Pohang, Korea), N. Deger (Kazan, Russia), E. Ó Colgáin (Pohang, Korea), and H. Yavartanoo (Beijing, China), was published in July, link here.
The paper “Optimal mixing enhancement” co-authored by Gary Froyland (University of New South Wales) and Naratip Santitissadeekorn has recently appeared in the SIAM Journal of Applied Mathematics. A link to the published paper is here. The paper introduces a general-purpose method for optimizing the mixing rate of advective fluid flows.
