Optimised mixing and flow resistance during shear flow over a rib roughened boundary (2014)
Journal Article
Arfaie, A., Burns, A., Dorrell, R., Eggenhuisen, J., Ingham, D., & McCaffrey, W. (2014). Optimised mixing and flow resistance during shear flow over a rib roughened boundary. International communications in heat and mass transfer, 58, 54-62. https://doi.org/10.1016...asstransfer.2014.08.005

A series of numerical investigations has been performed to study the effect of lower boundary roughness on turbulent flow in a two-dimensional channel. The roughness spacing to height ratio, w/k, has been investigated over the range 0.12 to 402 by va...

Hydrodynamics of fossil fishes (2014)
Journal Article
Fletcher, T., Altringham, J., Peakall, J., Wignall, P., & Dorrell, R. (2014). Hydrodynamics of fossil fishes. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 281(1788), 20140703-20140703. https://doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2014.0703

From their earliest origins, fishes have developed a suite of adaptations for locomotion in water, which determine performance and ultimately fitness. Even without data from behaviour, soft tissue and extant relatives, it is possible to infer a wealt... Read More about Hydrodynamics of fossil fishes.

The critical role of stratification in submarine channels: Implications for channelization and long runout of flows (2014)
Journal Article
Dorrell, R. M., Darby, S. E., Peakall, J., Sumner, E. J., Parsons, D. R., & Wynn, R. B. (2014). The critical role of stratification in submarine channels: Implications for channelization and long runout of flows. Journal of geophysical research. C, Oceans, 119(4), 2620-2641. https://doi.org/10.1002/2014jc009807

Channelized submarine gravity currents travel remarkable distances, transporting sediment to the distal reaches of submarine fans. However, the mechanisms by which flows can be sustained over these distances remain enigmatic. In this paper we conside...

Submarine channel systems transport vast amounts of terrestrial sediment into the deep sea. Understanding the dynamics of the gravity currents that create these systems, and in particular, how these flows interact with and form bends, is fundamental...
