Congratulations to Daniel Hartman with successful MS theses defense and graduation!!
Theses topic “Numerical Analysis and Prediction of Aero-optical Effects”
Shell models of turbulence were used to study the effect of isotropic turbulence on the refractive index spectrum for the case of a plane wave beam propagation through turbulent flow. The calculated shell-averaged temperature spectrum was used to determine the refractive index power spectral density and to create 2D phase-screens for modeling the laser beam propagation in the formed turbulent flow.
