Paper Abstract

The optically active, turbulent flow field was investigated to simulate a low speed two-dimensional heated jet. Dynamic spatio-temporal index-of-refraction distribution and velocity profile of the turbulent flow field were obtained by applying computational fluid dynamic methods, the corresponding optical path difference numerical results were educed by optical computational methods. Some relationships between the flow large-scale structure and corresponding optical path differences are inferred.
