Abstract

An electroconvection (EC) in liquid crystal is used in the experimental study of turbulent transport. The transport characteristics in EC turbulence were investigated with a planer cell, and the diffusive property of turbulent transport was identified, which is identical to that of normal viscus fluid described by Navier–Stokes equation. Experimental research on turbulent transport using EC in a rotating spherical shell is proposed. A demonstration of the production of EC turbulence in a rotating spherical shell was carried out, where the radial gravity was replaced by electric field.
