This is an advanced textbook on the subject of turbulence, and is suitable for engineers, physical scientists and applied mathematicians. The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the elementary accounts of turbulence found in undergraduate texts, and the more rigorous monographs on the subject. Throughout, the book combines the maximum of physical insight with the minimum of mathematical detail. Chapters 1 to 5 may be appropriate as background material for an advanced undergraduate or introductory postgraduate course on turbulence, while chapters 6 to 10 may be suitable as background material for an advanced postgraduate course on turbulence, or act as a reference source for professional researchers. 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 turbulence, Magnetohydrodynamics, and turbulence in the core of the Earth

Written five centuries after the first studies of Leonardo da Vinci and half a century after A.N. Kolmogorov's first attempt to predict the properties of flow, this textbook presents a modern account of turbulence, one of the greatest challenges in physics. "Fully developed turbulence" is ubiquitous in both cosmic and natural environments, in engineering applications and in everyday life. Elementary presentations of dynamical systems ideas, probabilistic methods (including the theory of large deviations) and fractal geometry make this a self-contained textbook. This is the first book on turbulence to use modern ideas from chaos and symmetry breaking. The book will appeal to first-year graduate students in mathematics, physics, astrophysics, geosciences and engineering, as well as professional scientists and engineers.

The authors present the results of numerical experiments carried out to examine the problem of development of turbulence and convection. On the basis of the results, they propose a physical model of the development of turbulence. Numerical algorithms and difference schema for carrying out numerical experiments in hydrodynamics, are proposed. Original algorithms, suitable for calculation of the development of the processes of turbulence and convection in different conditions, even on astrophysical objects, are presented. The results of numerical modelling of several important phenomena having both fundamental and applied importance are described.

This book provides a general introduction to the topic of turbulent flows. Apart from classical topics in turbulence, attention is also paid to modern topics. After studying this work, the reader will have the basic knowledge to follow current topics on turbulence in scientific literature. The theory is illustrated with a number of examples of applications, such as closure models, numerical simulations and turbulent diffusion, and experimental findings. The work also contains a number of illustrative exercises Review from the Textbook & Academic Authors Association that awarded the book with the 2017 Most Promising New Textbook Award: “Compared to other books in this subject, we find this one to be very up-to-date and effective at explaining this complicated subject. We certainly would highly recommend it as a text for students and practicing professionals who wish to expand their understanding of modern fluid mechanics.”

Turbulence is one of the most wide-spread phenomena in the universe. It relates to processes within the atmosphere, ocean, deep within the earth, as well as to the stars. The general public usually knows about turbulence from the unpleasant shaking of an airplane, or from disastrous atmospheric phenomena such as typhoons and hurricanes. The chaotic and unpredictable behavior of turbulent movement makes it very difficult to study. The degree of understanding of turbulence is still far from being complete. Some progress was made with the recent advent of a new science--chaos theory. The authors succeeded in examining one basic feature of turbulence called helicity (or spirality) which is the foundation of explaining and predicting the generation of large turbulent structures (e.g. typhoons). Helicity is a universal feature existing not only in fluid flows but also in solid bodies and even in living organisms. This book can be especially useful for researchers and students in fluid mechanics, plasma, geophysics, biology, and meteorology. * Examines the helical mechanism of self-organization in nature and laboratory * Presents a unified approach to chaos and theory * Discusses similarities and differences in the formation of dynamic and magnetic structures * Successfully combines profound theoretical and experimental knowledge * Includes a disk with an expanded bibliographical database
