Subgrid Scale Modeling and Statistical Theories in Three-Dimensional Turbulence

  • Jean-Pierre Chollet
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 58)


Statistical theories of turbulence can be used to derive subgrid scale (SGS) modeling for large eddy simulations (LES) of homogeneous turbulence. Well-suited to pseudo-spectral numerical codes, they are also of interest to better understand eddy-viscosity concepts without reference to any particuliar method of field computations.
