dear friends;
I want to expand my fundamental knowledge of turbulent flow. I read 2 chapter of "A first course in turbulence" by Tennekes, but it is so complicated and full of formula without any further explanations. I know turbulent flow is extremely complicated, but I need a book which has physical explanation as well as mathematical formula.

thanks in advance.

It gives a lot of physical insight.

sbaffini will become famous soon enough
I agree with Praveen, the Book of Davidson is, for several reasons, Amazing. However, i wouldn't say it is for beginners. Some of the physical discussions are actually advanced and you can only appreciate it when you can actually manage the more equation oriented books. You may consider reading first a turbulence chapter on some basic fluid mechanics book (e.g., Kundu-Cohen), then i would suggest switching to the book of Pope which has the right balance of equations and descriptions.

In any case, buying the book is the only option for people who want to study these stuff. Eventually, you are gonna sit and put the pen on the paper until you can manage it all.

dear sbaffini;

thank you so much for your clarification. I read some book about turbulence (advance fluid dynamics by White and some chapter of Turbulence modeling for CFD by Wilcox). I also have been worked on transition modeling for three years, but I think I should expand and deepen my knowledge of theory of turbulence.
I agree with you that reading from paper is better and more enjoyable than reading from screen, but because in my country, accessing to credit card is so limited, I can not buy this book online. so I should find them via internet, download it and the print it.
