Module overview

This module will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of turbulent flow . The focus will be on understanding the equations of motion and the underlying physics they contain. The goal will be to provide you with the tools necessary to continue the study of turbulence. Topics covered include: what is turbulence; the Reynolds-averaged equations; the Reynolds stress equations; simple decaying turbulence; homogeneous shear flow turbulence; free turbulent shear flows; wall-bounded turbulent flows; turbulent mixing.
