The NWJ is a publication of the Principal Associate Directorate for Weapons Programs

Journal Highlights

remote sensing of structural conditionsModeling Chaotic Mixing
Unsteady hydrodynamic flow produces chaotic mixing, problematic in aeronautics, laser micro machining and other industrial applications. Los Alamos scientists’ mesh convergence data, algorithm analysis, and experimental validations provide theoretical predictions of the complex phenomena.
