Generalization of the Alternative Vinen's Equation Describing the Superfluid Turbulence in Rotating Container

David Jou, Maria Stella Mongiovì, Michele Sciacca


In this work, a generalization for the alternative Vinen’s equation in counterflow rotational superfluid turbulence is proposed. It is compared with the equation proposed in Phys. Rev. B, 69, 094513 (2004) and with the experimental results. We consider not only steady-states but also unsteady situations. From this analysis follows that the solutions of the alternative Vinen’s equation tend significantly faster to the corresponding final steady state values than the solutions of the usual Vinen’s equation.
