Drag Reduction and Turbulence
- 175 Downloads
The subject of turbulence is by far too complicated to be handled in an introductionary chapter. Therefore, the goal of these notes is to introduce those elements of a description of turbulence which are relevant for representing the interaction of a turbulent flow field with dissolved or suspended additives. The intention is to understand the main elements of the drag reducing mechanism, with hope that in doing so we would also start to understand more about the turbulent mechanism itself.
