The above equations for the stream function allow one to calculate the roughness-driven correction to the dissipation of energy and effective friction.
Surface Roughness and Effective Stick-Slip Motion
A widely accepted scenario for producing gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is dissipation of the kinetic energy of a relativistic flow by relativistic shocks (see, e.g., a review by Piran 1999).
Photon Emission in a Cascade from Relativistic Protons Initiated by Residual Thermal Photons in Gamma-Ray Bursts
The cascade triggered by the collisions of shock-accelerated protons with residual photons can efficiently transport the dissipated energy into electron–positron pairs. A schematic diagram of the energy transfer is shown in figure 1.

In this work, we also inject energy into the fluid at large scales by moving the random potential, thus obtaining steady turbulence sustained by the balance of the injection and dissipation of the energy.
Inertial Range and the Kolmogorov Spectrum of Quantum Turbulenc
The energy spectrum of the incompressible kinetic energy still takes the Kolmogorov law, and the energy flux Π is almost independent of the scales in the inertial range and consistent with the energy dissipation rate in the energydissipative range.
