Turbulent Flow Concepts

  • Roger Prud’homme
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 94)


This chapter deals with turbulent flow, as opposed to laminar (nonchaotic) flow. The reference is always a laminar flow, and this can become turbulent flow as a result of external destabilization. Turbulent flows are characterized by high complexity. Turbulent processes can be modeled using a variety of numerical simulations associated with computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
