UUM 509E  Turbulent Flow
Course Objectives
This is an introductory course to turbulence, the most common state of fluid motion in nature and engineering, and a very challenging physical problem. We begin by introducing fundamentals concepts in the description of the mean flow and of the turbulent fluctuations, using Cartesian tensor formulations and with coverage of necessary concepts from probability and statistics. Turbulent shear flows with both free and wall boundaries are considered. Finally we discuss some of the more common approaches in turbulence modeling.
