The prediction of turbulent flows is of paramount importance in the development of complex engineering systems involving flow, heat and mass transfer, and chemical reactions. This book emerges from a major program at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge, England. Utilizing modern computational fluid dynamics techniques, it reviews current approximation methods and their applicability to various industrial problems.

Editorial Reviews

"The book presents a more measured view than a conference proceedings volume of unrelated papers can possibly do and also presents a much broader picture than some recent books with one or two authors." -Peter Bradshaw, Standford University. AIAA Journal
