IUTAM Symposium on Reynolds Number Scaling in Turbulent by Alexander J. Smits

By Alexander J. Smits

This quantity offers chosen papers from the IUTAM Symposium on Reynolds quantity Scaling in Turbulent circulate, convened in Princeton, NJ, united states, September I1-13, 2002. The habit ofturbulence at excessive Reynolds quantity is fascinating from a primary viewpoint, in that almost all theories of turbulence make very particular predictions within the restrict of countless Reynolds quantity. From a simpler viewpoint, there exist many functions that contain turbulent circulate the place the Reynolds numbers are tremendous huge. for instance, huge automobiles corresponding to submarines and advertisement transports function at Reynolds nine numbers in keeping with size ofthe order oft0 , and commercial pipe flows hide a 7 very wide variety of Reynolds numbers as much as 10 • Many vitally important functions of excessive Reynolds quantity movement pertain to atmospheric and different geophysical flows the place super excessive Reynolds numbers are the rule of thumb instead of the exception, and the certainty of weather alterations and the prediction of damaging climate results hinges to some degree on our appreciation ofhigh-Reynolds quantity turbulence habit. the $64000 results of Reynolds quantity on turbulence has acquired loads of contemporary awareness. the target of the Symposium was once to collect the various world's specialists during this quarter to appraise the hot experimental effects, talk about new scaling legislation and turbulence versions, and to augment our mutual realizing of turbulence.
