Turbulence in nonclosed fluid flows as a noise-induced phase transition
Department of Physics, Moscow State University, 119899 Moscow, Russia
Accepted: 10 October 1996
It is hypothesized that the transition to turbulence in nonclosed fluid flows and the formation of coherent structures associated with it is not an excitation of self-oscillations, first periodic and then chaotic, as is commonly adopted by many investigators, but a noise-induced nonequilibrium phase transition of the second kind. It is shown that this hypothesis is supported by a number of numerical and real experiments.
