Careful, address modification

From June 27, 2016, and during the works for the new building (end of 2018), Laboratory FAST is located on two sites:
Offices: 23-25 rue Jean Rostand, on the Parc-Club d'Orsay.
Experiment building: Bâtiment 502, rue André Rivière.

The new building (2018)

Focus on a project

Rotating turbulence

N. Machicoane, A. Campagne, P.-P. Cortet, F. Moisy

Collaboration : B. Gallet (CEA Saclay).

The two-dimensional structuration of a turbulent flow in a rotating frame is a key mechanism for geophysical flows (ocean, atmosphere, rotating stars etc.) Using the rotating platform Gyroflow, we measure the anisotropic energy flux responsible for this two-dimensional structuration.
