My understanding of Kolmogorov Microscale is that in a turbulent fluid, smaller eddies tend to be similiar to larger eddies - until you arrive at the microscale. My understanding (that may be wrong) is that this roughly the smallest eddy in a turbulent flow.
If I'm not wrong, then we should expect to see these 'smallest eddies' in some way. In another question by me about the subject, I was given some numbers for an estimation:
- 100 $\mu m$ for a person running in air
- a range for energy dissipation in ceons that translates 0,1mm to 1cm for the length scale
While small, I imagine one can design an experiment to observe flow at these scales or create a setup (less speed, more viscosity) with larger microscales. Has this been done and can I see pictures?
