This book presents an introduction to the fundamentals of turbulent flow. Its focus is on understanding and simplifying the equations of motion for various classes of flow, so as to elucidate the most crucial and practically important aspects of the physics. Adopting a classical approach concentrated on canonical flows of various kinds, the book includes wisdom from the last few decades of research, supplementing this with biographical accounts of the 'subject giants' who have shaped the field. Practical exercises are also included, making use of online data sets that can be directly accessed while reading, allowing teachers to construct a wide range of further exercises for students, as well as facilitating independent study and analysis.

Key Features:

  • Aimed as a supplement to final year engineering or physical science undergraduate and/or first year graduate courses in turbulence, or as a basis for those entering turbulence research
  • Authored by two experts in the field from different generations, ensuring a broad perspective
  • Contains example questions
  • Provides programmes for the analysis of turbulence data, including recent data from leading research laboratories
