  • Numerical Investigation of Thermal Counterflow of He II Past Cylinders. Physical review letters Soulaine, C., Quintard, M., Baudouy, B., van Weelderen, R. 2017; 118 (7): 074506-?


    We investigate numerically, for the first time, the thermal counterflow of superfluid helium past a cylinder by solving with a finite volume method the complete so-called two-fluid model. In agreement with existing experimental results, we obtain symmetrical eddies both up- and downstream of the obstacle. The generation of these eddies is a complex transient phenomenon that involves the friction of the normal fluid component with the solid walls and the mutual friction between the superfluid and normal components. Implications for flow in a more realistic porous medium are also investigated.
