Backreaction of tracer particles on vortex tangle in helium II counterflow

15 May 2015 Varga E. Barenghi C. F. Sergeev Y. A. Skrbek L.

We report computer simulations of the interaction of seeding particles with quantized vortices and with the normal fluid flow in thermal counterflow of superfluid $^4$He. We show that if the particle concentration is too large, the vortex tangle is significantly affected, posing problems in the interpretation of visualization experiments... (read more)
