Computational Turbulent Incompressible Flow
by Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson
Publisher: Springer 2007
Number of pages: 415
In this book we address mathematical modeling of turbulent fluid flow, and its many mysteries that have haunted scientist over the centuries; such as the dAlembert mystery of drag in an inviscid flow, the Sommerfeld mystery of transition to turbulence in shear flow, and the Loschmidt mystery of violation of the 2nd law of thermodynamics.

Fluid and plasma flows exhibit complex random behaviour, called turbulence. This text is a brief introduction to the statistical theory of fluid turbulence, with emphasis on field-theoretic treatment of renormalized viscosity and energy fluxes.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.

This course will deal with a mathematical idealization of common fluids. The main idealization is embodied in the notion of a continuum and our 'fluids' will generally be identified with a certain connected set of points in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions.

The flow of fluids at branching junctions plays important roles in most biological flow systems. The present paper highlights some key issues related to the flow of fluids at these junctions with special emphasis on the biological flow networks.
