The objective of this complicated study Workshop was once to assemble Physicists, utilized Mathematicians and Fluid Dynamicists, together with very especially experimentalists, to study the to be had wisdom at the international structural features of turbulent flows, with an especial emphasis on open platforms, and to aim to arrive a consensus on their attainable dating to fresh advances within the knowing of the behaviour of low dimensional dynamical platforms and amplitude equations. much has been discovered in the course of contemporary years at the non-equilibrium behaviour of low dimen­ sional dynamical platforms, together with a few fluid flows (Rayleigh-Benard, Taylor-Couette, and so on. ). those are more often than not closed flows and plenty of of the worldwide structural gains of the low dimensional structures were saw in them, together with chaotic behaviour, interval doubling, intermit­ tency, and so forth. . It has additionally been proven that a few of these flows are intrinsically low dimensional, which debts for a lot of the saw similarities. Open flows appear to be diversified, and experimental observations element to an intrinsic excessive dimensionality. besides the fact that, many of the tran­ sitional positive factors of the low dimensional structures were saw in them, specifically within the intermittent behaviour of subcritical flows (pipes, channels, boundary layers with suction, and so forth. ), and within the huge scale geometry of coherent buildings of loose shear flows (mixing layers, jets and wakes).

G. the periodic forcing of a three dimensional jet or a distorted mixing layer. In this way it is often possible to increase the effect considerably. In the following we shall discuss a special case which displays various characteristics as discussed above. 2. 1 Experlmental Arrangements The investigation of this phenomenon is done in two test sections of identical proportions yet of different dimensions, scaled as 1 : 5. Figure 1 shows the general layout and major dimensions. The test section consists of two side walls with adjustable distance B.

In general, a pairing process appears to take place in three successive phases that is, an initial phase of gradual approach of the participating vortices, followed by the merging of their outer parts into a common layer of rotating fluid enveloping them (plate 5b). Finally, during the last phase the process of pairing is completed, resulting to the emergence of a single large vortex structure. In several instances, the merging of two vortices has been observed to take the form of a "vortex dipole" as shown in plate 7.
