An Informal Introduction to Turbulence by A. Tsinober

By A. Tsinober

This publication is a casual creation to the turbulence of fluids. The emphasis is put on turbulence as a actual phenomenon. It addresses the unresolved concerns, misconceptions, controversies, and significant difficulties of the turbulence of fluids instead of the traditional formalistic parts and types. Little use is made from complex formalisms; as a substitute the emphasis is put on an basically casual qualitative shape. The scope of the publication is interested in the merely easy features of the turbulent flows of incompressible fluids. This publication will surely be of curiosity and use to graduate scholars in addition to scientists energetic in fields the place the turbulence of fluids is of value. The e-book is deliberately written to entice a wide readership with the purpose of creating the turbulence of fluids fascinating and understandable to the engineer.

Comparatively simple nonlinear systems exhibiting chaotic behaviour. g. There have been important changes in our understanding of the mechanism whereby turbulence occurs. Although a consistent theory of turbulence is still a thing in the future, there is reason to suppose that the right path has finally been found. (M. I. Rabinovich, in: L. D. Landau and E. M. Lifshitz, Fluid Mechanics, 2nd edition, Pergamon Press 1987). Today it seems that the application of dynamical systems methods and results to turbulence in fluids is hardly appropriate7.

G. by solving them by ‘hand’. e. by indirect use of NSE and their consequences. For example, looking at the NSE and their consequences themselves enables us to recognize the dynamically important quantities and physical processes involved. In other words, NSE and their consequences tell us what quantities and relations should be studied. So far this can be done mostly experimentally, but this kind of ‘guiding’ should also be useful theoretically. The most elegant exception is a set of theoretical results on the a priory upper bounds12 of long time averages of dissipation and global transport of mass, momentum and heat (for a recent review see Doering, 1999; Kerswell, 1999; and also Foias, 1997).

But this equation is linear. The problem arises due to the multiplicative nature of the velocity field, since velocity enters this equation as its coefficients. 4. NONINTEGRABILITY In 1788 Lagrange wrote: One owes to Euler the first general formulas for fluid motion ... presented in the simple and luminous notation of partial differences... (Mécanique analitique, Paris, 1788, Sec X. p. 271). The if in the above citation is crucial: the Navier-Stokes equations are not integrable. Integrable systems, such as those having a solution ‘in closed form’ exhibit regular organized behaviour, even those having (formally) an infinite number of strongly coupled degrees of freedom.
