This chapter deals with computation of turbulent flows. The nature of turbulence and three methods for its simulation are described: direct and large-eddy simulation and methods based on Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. Some widely used models in the latter two approaches are described, including details related to boundary conditions. Examples of application of these approaches, including comparison of their performance, are presented.
