Book Description

Turbulent Flow presents the essential physical and analytical background that enables readers to makeinformed decisions when choosing the best method for the study and prediction of turbulent flows. Criticalfocus is given to experimental and numerical methods as well as what these methods have revealedabout turbulent motion.

Coverage includes an introduction to turbulence theory, the fundamental equations of turbulent flow andtheir meaning, the techniques used in physical experiments and computer simulations, a review of theprogress made in understanding the properties of turbulence, turbulence closures and their applications,and large eddy simulation methods.

Cutting-edge material includes:

  • State-of-the-art turbulence closure and simulation techniques Up-to-date presentations of major theoretical and experimental advances Vortex analysis of turbulence structure, transport, and modeling
  • Turbulent Flow is an essential book for students and an invaluable reference for mechanical andaerospace engineers, physicists and mathematicians in related disciplines, and engineers and scientistsin such fields as chemical, biological, and ocean engineering.
