9780198562566: The Physics of Fluid Turbulence (Oxford Engineering Science Series)

This book provides an in-depth look at fluid turbulence: the archetypal non-linear, non-equilibrium problem of statistical physics which has witnessed significant progress in recent years, facilitated by advances in laser anemometry, computer technology, and theoretical methods from quantum physics. A fully integrated work, The Physics of Fluid Turbulence approaches its subject as a universal phenomenon with a universal behavior. It includes a concise summary of the theory and practice of turbulence science up to 1960, followed by a detailed analysis of more recent developments in this area, including a rigorous formulation of the turbulence problem as an example of a non-equilibrium statistical system with strong coupling, along with the application of renormalized perturbation theory. Designed for those new to the subject, the book will also be useful to those who are familiar with the study of turbulence but have not yet approached the subject utilizing the theoretical methods from quantum physics that are covered here.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Since 1960 the study of turbulence has been enhanced by developments in areas such as laser anemometry, powerful computers, digital data processing and theoretical methods from quantum physics. Turbulence is the archetypal non-linear, non-equilibrium problem of statistical physics; the fundamental problems of turbulence are still unsolved, but there is a growing interest in their solution. This book aims to look at fluid turbulence from the point of view of engineering science and physics to produce an integrated treatise on the nature of the physics of fluid turbulence as a universal phenomenon with a universal behaviour. It is designed for those who are new to the subject and also for those familiar with the more traditional branches of the study of turbulence but not with the usages of quantum physics. For the first group of readers, a concise summary of the theory and practice of turbulence up to about 1960 is given as an introduction. This is followed by a detailed analysis of modern (post 1960) turbulence theory, including rigorous formulation of the turbulence problem as an example of a non-equilibrium statistical system with strong coupling and the application of renormalized perturbation theory to turbulence.
