This ebook is an off-the-cuff creation to the turbulence of fluids. The emphasis is put on turbulence as a actual phenomenon. It addresses the unresolved matters, misconceptions, controversies, and significant difficulties of the turbulence of fluids instead of the traditional formalistic components and versions. Little use is made from advanced formalisms; as an alternative the emphasis is put on an primarily casual qualitative shape. The scope of the e-book is all for the basically uncomplicated features of the turbulent flows of incompressible fluids. This ebook will surely be of curiosity and use to graduate scholars in addition to scientists energetic in fields the place the turbulence of fluids is of significance. The booklet is deliberately written to attract a large readership with the purpose of constructing the turbulence of fluids fascinating and understandable to the engineer.

Saffman – are postdictions. Apart from the above-mentioned reasons for such a failure it should be mentioned that, unlike statistical physics, in turbulence neither ‘simple objects’ (such that a collection of these objects would adequately represent turbulent flows) ‘to do statistical mechanics’ with them, nor ‘right’ statistical hypotheses have so far been found. The question about the very existence of both remains open. 4. Outline of the following material Our main emphasis is on the basic properties of turbulent flows.

The goal is now to reduce to a manageable number the many degrees of freedom necessary to describe the flow, to determine the equations governing the dynamics of the reduced degrees of freedom, and to solve those equations analytically or numerically to calculate fundamental quantities that characterize the flow. (Frisch and Orszag, 1990). If we assume as a basic starting point in every theory of turbulence its representation in terms of spectral coefficients, statistical or physical averages, or more generally simple objects conditionally extracted by a weak background, turbulence modelling could be defined reductively, as the art of writing the equations that produce directly such quantities.

Klimontovich, 1996). It is quite common to contrapose the ‘traditional’ statistical and the deterministic/structural approaches in turbulence research. However, contrasting the terms ‘deterministic’ and ‘random’ has lost most (but not all) of its meaning with the developments in ‘deterministic chaos’: it is well established that even simple systems governed by purely deterministic nonlinear sets of equations, such as those described by only three nonlinear ordinary differential equations, as a rule exhibit irregular apparently random/stochastic behaviour.
