Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Fundamental phenomena and concepts. Statistical methods. Shear-flow turbulence and the turbulent boundary layer. CFD models for turbulent flow. The theory of isotropic and homogeneous turbulence.

Intended learning outcomes *

The primary aim of the course is to give the students an overview of turbulent flow and turbulence.

After completing the course a student should be able to;

  • use statistical methods to describe and analyse turbulent flow,
  • describe and explain the lengthscale structure of turbulence, and
  • use an understanding of turbulence to describe the strengths and weaknesses of common CFD models for turbulent flow.
