Wilcox Publisher: DCW Industries | 1993 | ISBN: 0963605100 | Pages: 477 | PDF | 19 MB This book has been developed from the author's lecture notes used in presenting a post-graduate course on turbulence modeling at the University of Southern California. While several computational fluid dynamics (CFD) texts include some information about turbulence modeling, very few texts dealing exclusively with turbulence modeling have been written. As a consequence, turbulence modeling is regarded by many CFD researchers as "black magic," lacking in rigor and physical foundation. This book has been written to show that turbulence modeling can be done in a systematic and physically sound manner. This is not to say all turbulence modeling has been done in such a manner, for indeed many ill-conceived and ill-fated turbulence models have appeared in engineering journals. Even this author, early in his career, devised a turbulence model that violated Galilean invariance of the time-averaged Navier-Stokes equations! However, with judicious use of relatively simple mathematical tools, systematic construction of a well-founded turbulence model is not only possible but can be an exciting and challenging research project.
