- Motivation
- Vortex-free vibrating wire
- that cannot generate turbulence.
- If we can do it, then
- Study of the transition to turbulence

The velocity of generating turbulence(~ 50 mm/s) is much lower than the Landau velocity of60 m/s.

Remanent vortices should cause the generation of turbulence !!

Bridged vortex lines

Transition to turbulence due to remanent vortex lines

Response of a vibrating wire

Bridged vortex lines attach to the wire.

ï‚¤

Oscillation of the bridged vortices causes turbulence.

Vortex lines are nucleated through the superfluid transition, attaching to the vibrating wire.

number of injected vortex rings:8

- 8 rings are enough for triggering the turbulence.
- A turbulence region appears to be on the trajectory of the sphere.

Study on the transition to turbulence

using a vortex-free vibrating wire

- Turbulent Transition
- Transition due to remanent vortices
- Transition triggered by free vortex rings
- Transition triggered by temperature sweep
- Temperature control: 1 ~ 1.8 K (< Tl=2.17 K)
- Control of a normal fluid component
- Using a vortex-free vibrating wire

Transition to superfluid turbulence triggered by temperature sweep

Turbulent transition

- Normal fluid flow should affect the superfluid flow.
- Turbulent transition requires:
- T > 1.05 K (rn > 1 %)
- Reynolds number (~KC) > 15
- wire velocity > critical velocity of the superfluid turbulence

- Flow patterns behind a cylinder
- in a classical fluid

Normal fluid component

- Normal fluid flow should affect the superfluid flow.
- Turbulent transition requires:
- T > 1.05 K (rn > 1 %)
- Reynolds number (~KC) > 15
- wire velocity > critical velocity of the superfluid turbulence

Normal fluid eddies might induce superfluid vortices.
