An Introduction to Turbulent Flow

An Introduction to Turbulent Flow Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years, turbulence has become a very lively area of scientific research and application, attracting many newcomers who need a basic introduction to the subject. Turbulent Flows ably meets this need, developing both physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to express the theory. The authors present basic theory and illustrate it with examples of simple turbulent flows and classical models of jets, wakes, and boundary layers. A deeper understanding of turbulence dynamics is provided by their treatment of spectral analysis and its applications.

Synopsis:

An Introduction to Turbulent Flow develops both physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to express the theory. It begins with a review of the physical nature of turbulence, statistical tools, and space and time scales of turbulence. Basic theory is presented next, with examples of simple turbulent flows and classical models of jets, wakes, and boundary layers. Remaining chapters cover spectral analysis and its applications and the numerical simulation of turbulent flows.

Synopsis:

Turbulent Flows offers a solid grounding in the subject of turbulence, developing both physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to express the theory. It begins with a review of the physical nature of turbulence, statistical tools, and space and time scales of turbulence. Basic theory is presented next, illustrated by examples of simple turbulent flows and classical models of jets, wakes, and boundary layers. The remainder of the book is devoted to spectral analysis and its applications and the numerical simulation of turbulent flows.This well-balanced text will interest graduate students in engineering, applied mathematics, and the physical sciences. It will also be a useful reference for practicing engineers and scientists.

Synopsis:

Provides the physical and mathematical framework necessary to understand turbulent flow.
