Default definition of TKE and its relationship to buoyancy
Posts: n/a
In wiki, TKE is defined as "Turbulent Kinetic Energy (TKE) is the mean kinetic energy per unit mass associated with eddies in turbulent flow. It is a concept used to assess what contribution to buoyancy is brought by turbulence." I don't understand how TKE can be used to assess the contribution to buoyancy from turbulence. Could somebody explain that to me, please? Thank you very much.
