Further Developments in Turbulence Management

Overview

The thrust of modern research on turbulence in fluids is concerned with coherent structures and modelling. Riblets have been shown to reduce drag, and the papers presented in this volume tackle the main question of the mechanism responsible for this behaviour in turbulent flow.
The contributions in this volume were presented at the Sixth Drag Reduction Meeting held at Eindhoven during November 1991.

Overview

The thrust of modern research on turbulence in fluids is concerned with coherent structures and modelling. Riblets have been shown to reduce drag, and the papers presented in this volume tackle the main question of the mechanism responsible for this behaviour in turbulent flow.
The contributions in this volume were presented at the Sixth Drag Reduction Meeting held at Eindhoven during November 1991.
This volume will be a useful reference work for engineers, physicists and applied mathematicians interested in the topic of fluid turbulence.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprinted from a special issue of Applied Scientific Research v.50, nos. 3/4 (1993), reports recent findings on the mechanism by which riblets reduce drag during the turbulent flow of fluids. Among the topics are friction velocity and virtual origin estimates for mean velocity profiles above smooth and triangular riblet surfaces, the viscous sublayer analysis of riblets and wire arrays, and the drag of three-dimensional rectangular cavities. Addressed to engineers, physicists, and applied mathematicians working with turbulence. The 11 papers were presented at the Drag Reduction Meeting in Eindhoven, Netherlands, November 1991. No index.
