Disordered Systems > s.a. Order; quantum systems; Random Medium; solid matter [amorphous solids, glass]. * In a solid: Disorder has a strong influence on the solid's elastic properties; In terms of electronic properties, disorder in a crystal tends to localize electrons and drive a transition from a metallic to an insulating state (Anderson localization transition). * Remark: In quantum statistics, disorder is described in terms of entropy and algorithmic complexity, which is not antithetical to the notion of order. @ General references: Binder & Kob 05, Bovier 06 [statistical mechanics, r JSP(08)]; Sewell a0711-en [in quantum statistical mechanics, survey]; Brody et al JPCS(09)-a0901 [in thermal equilibrium]; Giacomin et al a0906 [and critical behavior]; Wreszinski JMP(12)-a1208-ln [quantum, rev]. @ Strong disorder: Iglói & Monthus PRP(05) [RG approach]; Monthus & Garel JPA(08) [equilibrium properties and phases]; Vojta et al PRB(09) + Refael Phy(09)jan [RG approach, universal behavior]; Goldsborough & Evenbly PRB(17)-a1708 [entanglement renormalization]. @ In condensed matter: Foster et al PRB(09) + Vojta Phy(09) [typical electron wave function]; Pollet et al PRL(09) + Weichman Phy(09) [patches of order in disordered boson systems and superfluid-insulator transition]; Blundell & Terentjev PRS(11) [influence on deformations in semiflexible networks]; Briet & Savoie RVMP(12) [magnetic response]; Chern et al NJP(14) [disorder-induced criticality in artificial spin ices]; Ashhab PRA(15)-a1510 [effect on the transfer of quantum states]; Kurečić & Osborne a1809 [interacting quantum systems, stochastic integral representation]; Skinner et al PRL(21) + news Phys(21) [detecting hidden order]. > Related concepts / tools: see Anderson Localization [random media]; Replica Symmetry; QCD phenomenology; wave phenomena [propagation]. > Related phenomena: see bose-einstein condensates; casimir effect; localization.

Use of a dual view, high speed, holographic movie technique is examined for studying turbulent flow control physics. This approach, which eliminates some of the limitations of previous holographic techniques, is termed a holocinematographic velocimeter (HCV). The data from this system can be used to check theoretical turbulence modeling and numerical simulations, visualize and measure coherent structures in 'non-simple' turbulent flows, and examine the mechanisms operative in various turbulent control/drag reduction concepts. This system shows promise for giving the most complete experimental characterization of turbulent flows yet available.

A major concern in advancing the state-of-the-art technologies for hypersonic vehicles is the development of an aeropropulsion system capable of withstanding the sustained high thermal loads expected during hypersonic flight. Even though progress has been made in the computational understanding of fluid dynamics and the physics/chemistry of high speed flight, there is also a need for experimental facilities capable of providing a high heat flux environment for testing component concepts and verifying/calibrating these analyses. A hydrogen/oxygen rocket engine heat source was developed at the NASA Lewis Research Center as one element in a series of facilities at national laboratories designed to fulfill this need. This 'Hot Gas Facility' is capable of providing heat fluxes up to 450 w/sq cm on flat surfaces and up to 5,000 w/sq cm at the leading edge stagnation point of a strut in a supersonic flow stream. Gas temperatures up to 3050 K can also be attained. Two recent experimental programs conducted in this facility are discussed. The objective of the first experiment is to evaluate the erosion and oxidation characteristics of a coating on a cowl leading edge (or strut leading edge) in a supersonic, high heat flux environment. Macrophotographic data from a coated leading edge model show progressive degradation over several thermal cycles at aerothermal conditions representative of high Mach number flight. The objective of the second experiment is to assess the capability of cooling a porous surface exposed to a high temperature, high velocity flow environment and to provide a heat transfer data base for a design procedure. Experimental results from transpiration cooled surfaces in a supersonic flow environment are presented. 2b1af7f3a8
