Introduction to turbulent flows:

  • Introduction to Turbulence, Equations of Fluid Motion
  • Statistical Description of Turbulence, Mean Flow Equations
  • Turbulent Round Jet, Turbulent Kinetic Energy
  • Mixing Layer, Homogeneous Shear Flow, Grid Turbulence, Intermittency
  • Energy Cascade, Kolmogorov Hypotheses, Energy Transfer
  • Velocity Spectra, Kolmogorov Spectrum
  • Channel Flow
  • Boundary Layer, Coherent Structures
  • Turbulent Viscosity Models
  • Large-Eddy-Simulation

Accompanying the lecture, exercises are offered in which the students apply the acquired
methods and concepts using real data sets.


The lecture "Turbulent Flows" has a scope of 4 ECTS.
