Download An Informal Introduction to Turbulence by A. Tsinober PDF

By A. Tsinober

This ebook is an off-the-cuff advent to the turbulence of fluids. The emphasis is put on turbulence as a actual phenomenon. It addresses the unresolved matters, misconceptions, controversies, and significant difficulties of the turbulence of fluids instead of the traditional formalistic parts and types. Little use is made up of complex formalisms; as an alternative the emphasis is put on an basically casual qualitative shape. The scope of the ebook is curious about the basically simple features of the turbulent flows of incompressible fluids. This booklet will surely be of curiosity and use to graduate scholars in addition to scientists lively in fields the place the turbulence of fluids is of significance. The publication is deliberately written to attract a wide readership with the purpose of creating the turbulence of fluids fascinating and understandable to the engineer.

Example text

See Zakharov (1990) for more examples and discussion on what is integrability. 17 Note that, just like in the case of vorticity, the whole flow field is determined entirely by the field of strain. This is seen from the equation which together with the boundary conditions uniquely defines the velocity field. 24 CHAPTER 1 react back in a nonlocal manner. There is no such relation in the case of a passive contaminant (or any other passive object) in a turbulent flow. The relation in this latter case, though also nonlocal, is one-directional: the fluid flow does not ‘know’ anything about the presence of the passive object.

Though there exist a set of deterministic differential equations (NSE) probably containing (almost) all of turbulence, most of our knowledge about turbulence comes from observations and experiments (laboratory, field and later numerical)10. N. Kolmogorov: I soon understood that there was little hope of developing a pure, closed theory, and because of absence of such a theory the investigation must be based on hypotheses obtained on processing experimental data (see Tikhomirov, 1991)11. Much later he wrote that the observational material is so large, that it allows us to foresee rather subtle mathematical results, which would be very interesting to prove (Kolmogorov, 1978).

E. an individual description of the fields of velocity, pressure, temperature, and other characteristics of turbulent flow is in principle impossible. Moreover, such description would not be useful even if possible, since the extremely complicated and irregular nature of all the fields eliminates the possibility of using exact values of them in any practical problems... In the present-day statistical fluid mechanics, it is always implied that the fluid mechanical fields of a turbulent flow are random fields in the sense used in probability theory.
