Turbulent transport of small particles plays important roles in many natural phenomena and engineering applications, such as aerosols, rain drops in clouds, and pneumatic transport of solid particles. In these phenomena, small particles are not only transported by turbulence, but also modulate turbulence over a wide range of space and time scales by condensation-evaporation, heat transport, frictional forces, etc.. In this talk, I will discuss two recent works that studied the modulation of turbulent fluctuations by small particles through heat transfer (Saito et al., 2022) and frictional force (Saito et al., 2019) using direct numerical simulations and stochastic Langevin equations.
