Abstract (NL)

The goal of this project is on understanding droplet dynamics and turbulence modification in the clustering regime St~1. We will consider droplets whose characteristic size is significantly larger than the Kolmogorov length scale, whence they can not be modeled as point droplets. In particular we are interested in situations leading to break-up and coalescence of these droplets. Besides the goals given above, these simulations also allow us to validate closure models that appear in continuum models.
