Before i dwell into CFD, I am trying to analytically prove this statement to be true for incompressible turbulent flow.

Im struggling to prove that in homogeneous, isotropic turbulent flows the average rate of kinetic energy dissipation per unit mass of fluid is: (attached image).

It looks like your image is cropped because your formula is incomplete and missing some terms if Rii is the auto-correlation function.

Nonetheless if you start with the definition of the turbulent dissipation rate, recognize that there is the trace of the Reynolds stress tensor hiding in there. Not that many tricks except abusing relations.
