ENME 708 - Turbulence - Winter 2022

Provides an overview of turbulence in incompressible flows of Newtonian fluids. Topics include: the nature of turbulence; classical methods of analysis (Reynolds-averaging, spectral representations); the concept of scales; a review of isotropic and homogeneous turbulence; the energy cascade and the role of vorticity in turbulence canonical flows: boundary layers, jets, wakes and mixing layers; modern views of turbulence including coherent motions and inter-scale energy transfer.
