TitleInterstellar turbulence
Author(s)edited by Jose?? Franco, Alberto Carramin??ana
Description1 online resource (ix, 287 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteTurbulence is universal and mysterious. It remains one of the major unsolved problems in physics and astrophysics. From star formation to large-scale outflows, turbulence is present in all interstellar and intergalactic media. With advances in observational techniques (from optical to radio) and the development of more efficient computer codes and faster computers, research in this area has made spectacular progress in recent years. This volume presents a series of review articles covering every aspect of interstellar turbulence - from accretion disks, molecular clouds, atomic and ionized media, through to spiral galaxies - based on a major international conference held in Mexico City. The result is a comprehensive overview of the most important developments in observing and modelling turbulent flows in the cosmos. It provides graduate students and researchers with a state-of-the-art summary of observational, theoretical and computational research in interstellar turbulence

TitlePhysical hydrodynamics
Author(s)Etienne Guyon;Jean-Pierre Hulin;Luc Petit;Catalin D. Mitescu
Edition2nd ed.
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxvii, 512p.
Abstract NotePhysical Hydrodynamics is a deeply enriched version of a classical textbook on fluid dynamics. It retains the same pedagogical spirit, based on the authors' experience of teaching university students in the physical sciences, and emphasizes an experimental (inductive) approach rather than the more formal approach found in many textbooks in the field. A new edition was necessary as contact between the mechanics and physics approaches and their communities has increased continuously over the last few decades. Today the field is more widely open to other experimental sciences: materials, environmental, life, and earth sciences, as well as the engineering sciences. Representative examples from these fields have been included where possible, while retaining a general presentation in each case. This book should be useful for researchers and engineers in these various fields.

TitleTen chapters in turbulence
Author(s)Peter A Davidson (ed.);Yukio Kaneda (ed.);Katepalli R. Sreenivasan (ed.)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxii, 437p.
Abstract NoteTurbulence is ubiquitous in science, technology and daily life and yet, despite years of research, our understanding of its fundamental nature is still tentative and incomplete. More generally, the tools required for a deep understanding of strongly interacting many-body systems remain underdeveloped. Inspired by a research programme held at the Newton Institute in Cambridge, this book contains reviews by leading experts that summarize our current understanding of the nature of turbulence from theoretical, experimental, observational and computational points of view. The articles cover a wide range of topics, including the scaling and organized motion in wall turbulence, small scale structure, dynamics and statistics of homogeneous turbulence, turbulent transport and mixing, and effects of rotation, stratification and magnetohydrodynamics, as well as superfluidity. The book will be useful to researchers and graduate students interested in the fundamental nature of turbulence at high Reynolds numbers.

TitleNumerical modelling of astrophysical turbulence
Author(s)Wolfram Schmidt
Description1 online resource (viii, 90 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteIn this "SpringerBrief" the author considers the underlying problems and questions that are common to numerical models of turbulence in different astrophysical systems. Turbulence has emerged as an important research topic in several areas of astrophysics. Understanding and modeling turbulence is particularly important for the dynamics of the interstellar medium, but also for the intergalactic medium, as well as in stars. The advancement of methods for numerical simulations of astrophysical turbulence, however, is still challenging because of gravity, strong compressibility, magnetic fields, and other effects. The book begins with a review of general aspects of numerical simulations of turbulence. In the main part the author presents findings from his numerical studies on astrophysical turbulence and discusses the astrophysical implications. He also explains in detail the numerical schemes utilized

Titleessence of turbulence as a physical phenomenon : with emphasis on issues of paradigmatic nature
Author(s)Arkady Tsinober
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 20132014.
Description1 online resource (xi, 169 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteThis book critically reexamines what turbulence really is, from a fundamental point of view and based on observations from nature, laboratories, and direct numerical simulations. It includes critical assessments and a comparative analysis of the key developments, their evolution and failures, along with key misconceptions and outdated paradigms. The main emphasis is on conceptual and problematic aspects, physical phenomena, observations, misconceptions and unresolved issues rather than on conventional formalistic aspects, models, etc. Apart from the obvious fundamental importance of turbulent flows, this emphasis stems from the basic premise that without corresponding progress in fundamental aspects there is little chance for progress in applications such as drag reduction, mixing, control and modeling of turbulence. More generally, there is also a desperate need to grasp the physical fundamentals of the technological processes in which turbulence plays a central role

TitleProgress in turbulence V : proceedings of the iTi Conference in Turbulence 2012
Author(s)Alessandro Talamelli (ed.);Martin Oberlack (ed.);Joachim Peinke (ed.)
Description1 online resource (xiv, 238 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteThis volume collects the edited and reviewed contributions presented in the 5th iTi Conference in Bertinoro. covering fundamental aspects in turbulent flows. In the spirit of the iTi initiative, the volume is produced after the conference so that the authors had the possibility to incorporate comments and discussions raised during the meeting. Turbulence presents a large number of aspects and problems, which are still unsolved and which challenge research communities in engineering and physical sciences both in basic and applied research. The book presents recent advances in theory related to new statistical approaches, effect of non-linearities and presence of symmetries. This edition presents new contributions related to the physics and control of laminar-turbulent transition in wall-bounded flows, which may have a significant impact on drag reduction applications. Turbulent boundary layers, at increasing Reynolds number, are the main subject of both computational and experimental long research programs aimed at improving our knowledge on scaling, energy distribution at different scales, structure eduction, roughness effects to name only a few. Like previous editions several numerical and experimental analysis of complex flows, mostly related to applications, are presented. The structure of the present book is as such that contributions have been bundled according to covering topics i.e. I Theory, II Stability, III Wall bounded flows, IV, Complex flows, V Acoustic, VI Numerical methods

TitleTurbulence and self-organization : modeling astrophysical objects
Author(s)Mikhail Ya Marov;Aleksander V. Kolesnichenko
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThis book focuses on the development of continuum models of natural turbulent media. It provides a theoretical approach to the solutions of different problems related to the formation, structure and evolution of astrophysical and geophysical objects. A stochastic modeling approach is used in the mathematical treatment of these problems, which reflects self-organization processes in open dissipative systems. The authors also consider examples of ordering for various objects in space throughout their evolutionary processes. This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers in the fields of mechanics, astrophysics, geophysics, planetary and space science

TitleHydrodynamic instability and transition to turbulence
Author(s)Akiva M. Yaglom (ed.);Uriel Frisch (ed.)
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2012.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThis book is a complete revision of the part of Monin & Yaglom's famous two-volume work "Statistical Fluid Mechanics: Mechanics of Turbulence" that deals with the theory of laminar-flow instability and transition to turbulence. It includes the considerable advances in the subject that have been made in the last 15 years or so. It is intended as a textbook for advanced graduate courses and as a reference for research students and professional research workers.The first two Chapters are an introduction to the mathematics, and the experimental results, for the instability of laminar (or inviscid) flows to infinitesimal (in practice "small") disturbances. The third Chapter develops this linear theory in more detail and describes its application to particular problems. Chapters 4 and 5 deal with instability to finite-amplitude disturbances: much of the material has previously been available only in research papers
Contents NoteForeword by Uriel Frisch -- In Memory of Akiva M. Yaglom: Obituary by Peter Bradshaw -- 1The equations of fluid dynamics and some of their consequences -- 2 Basic experimental facts and introduction to linear stability theory -- 3 More about linear stability theory -- studies of the initial-value problem -- 4 Stability to finite disturbances: energy method and Landau's equation -- 5 Further weakly-nonlinear approaches to laminar-flow stability: Blasius boundary layer flow as a paradigm
