About these proceedings


An international group of outstanding scientists presents a balanced discussion of various controversies in current turbulence theory. Six topics from the present-day approach to turbulence are each introduced by a survey, followed by three commentaries and a panel discussion. This analysis evaluates future developments of theories presently used for understanding and modelling turbulent flows.
