Fundamental aspects of turbulent flows will be discussed. Examples will be drawn from experimental and numerical studies of homogeneous turbulence, mixing layers, jets, wakes and boundary layers. Applications in engineering and in nature will be considered. Analytical tools to describe turbulent flows and associated mixing will be studied.
MAE 210A, 210B or equivalent.
The following books will be used as the primary references: 1) S. B. Pope, Turbulent flows, Cambridge University Press, 2000, and 2) P. S. Bernard and J. M. Wallace, Turbulent Flow: Analysis, Measurement and Prediction, John Wiley and Sons, 2002.
There will be four HWs (40%), a midterm (30%), a take-home exam due during Finals week(30%). The HWs and exams must be your own work.
EBU 2, Room 584 on Tuesday and Thursday, 12:30 - 1:50 PM
