FOUCAULT : A self-consistent model of quantum turbulence in superfluid Helium

The aim of our project is the elaboration of a realistic model of quantum turbulence for superfluid Helium. This new model describes the “normal fluid” and the “superfluid” components of the flow by using the Navier-Stokes equations and the vortex filament method respectively. Peculiar to our approach is the modeling of the mutual interaction between these components. This mutual interaction plays an essential role in determining the similarities (and the differences) between QT and classical turbulence (CT).
