Turbulence: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers

Peter Davidson


This book presents the subject of turbulence. The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the elementary, heuristic accounts of turbulence and the more rigorous accounts given. Throughout, the book combines the maximum of physical insight with the minimum of mathematical detail. This second edition covers a decade of advancement in the field, streamlining the original content while updating the sections where the subject has moved on. The expanded content includes large-scale dynamics, stratified & rotating turbulence, the increased power of direct numerical simulation, two-dimensional tu ... More

Keywords: turbulence, chaos, turbulent shear flows, homogeneous turbulence, geophysical turbulence
