Turbulence

Objective

Turbulence in fluid flows is one of the most intriguing problems of physics, by the nature and great difficulty of fundamental questions it raises, and by its numerous essential practical effects in hydraulics, aerodynamics, combustion, acoustics, climate and environmental studies, and astrophysics. These applications induce an urgent need to predict and control its effects.

During these last ten years, new theoretical approaches, either statistical or deterministic, sometimes borrowed to theoretical physics and statistical thermodynamics, have appeared. The time has come to assess these methods, especially in the light of new numerical methods (large-eddy simulations) or signal-processing tools (wavelet analysis, proper orthogonal decompositions).
