Advanced Approaches in Turbulence: Theory, Modeling, Simulation and Data Analysis for Turbulent Flows focuses on the updated theory, simulation and data analysis of turbulence dealing mainly with turbulence modeling instead of the physics of turbulence. Beginning with the basics of turbulence, the book discusses closure modeling, direct simulation, large eddy simulation and hybrid simulation. The book also covers the entire spectrum of turbulence models for both single-phase and multi-phase flows, as well as turbulence in compressible flow.
Turbulence modeling is very extensive and continuously updated with new achievements and improvements of the models. Modern advances in computer speed offer the potential for elaborate numerical analysis of turbulent fluid flow while advances in instrumentation are creating large amounts of data. This book covers these topics in great detail.
- Covers the fundamentals of turbulence updated with recent developments
- Focuses on hybrid methods such as DES and wall-modeled LES
- Gives an updated treatment of numerical simulation and data analysis
Prof. Paul Durbin has worked on various areas of turbulence over the last 40 years, starting as a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, continuing as a scientist at NASA, as a fellow at the center for turbulence research at Stanford University, as a professor in mechanical engineering at Stanford University, and now as a professor in aerospace engineering at Iowa State University. His research has encompassed Reynolds averaged closure modeling, hybrid simulation, direct numerical simulation and rapid distortion theory.
