    • Generating Topological Chaos in Lid-Driven Cavity Flow 

      Stremler, Mark A.; Chen, J. (AIP Publishing, 2007-10-01)
      Periodic motion of three stirrers in a two-dimensional flow can lead to chaotic transport of the surrounding fluid. For certain stirrer motions, the generation of chaos is guaranteed solely by the topology of that motion ...
    • Topological Chaos And Mixing in a Three-Dimensional Channel Flow 

      Chen, J.; Stremler, Mark A. (AIP Publishing, 2009-02-01)
      Passive mixing is investigated in a mathematical model of steady, three-dimensional, laminar flow through a rectangular channel. Efficient stirring is achieved by imposing spatially periodic transverse boundary velocities ...
