This book gives the first comprehensive overview of turbulence modelling from both the conventional and statistical-theoretical viewpoints. The mathematical structures of primary turbulence models such as algebraic (turbulent-viscosity-type), second-order, and subgrid-scales ones are elucidated, and the relationship between them is shown systematically. This approach is extended to turbulent or mean-field dynamo that plays an important role in the study of the generation and sustainment mechanisms of magnetic fields in astro-geophysical and fusion phenomena. Finally, turbulence modelling is shown to be a concept possessing a wide range of applicability in both the practical and academic senses. Readers are expected to have a basic knowledge of fluid mechanics at a graduate level and beyond. The important properties of turbulence necessary for turbulence modelling, however, are explained in a self-consistent manner. This book is therefore suited for both graduate students and researchers who are interested in turbulence modelling and turbulent dynamo.

Editorial Reviews

`... I consider this book a valuable introduction to a class of statistical turbulence theories. It is also an interesting discussion of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence. As such, it has a place on the shelves of advanced researchers in the field.' AIAA Journal, 38:3 (2000) `... I found this book very good. It provides an in-depth survey of recent advances in the field of statistical-theoretical turbulence modelling ... this is a valuable source for postgraduate students, physicists, geophysicists and engineers interested in learning about turbulence theory and its limitations.' Pure Applied Geophysics, 157 (2000) `... a brave attempt to cover a horribly difficult field ...' Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 469 (2002)
