Large-scale structures in stratified turbulent Couette flow and optimal disturbances
Direct numerical simulation data of a stratified turbulent Couette flow contains two types of organized structures: the rolls that arise at neutral and close to neutral stratification, and the layered structures, which manifest themselves as the static stability increases. It is shown that both types of structures have spatial scales and forms that coincide with the scales and forms of the optimal disturbances of the simplified linear model of the Couette flow with the same Richardson numbers.
