Summer 2008 (informal)
Tuesday Aug 5th (Falk Feddersen)
The next phase of our reading group will be turbulence models. We'll learn what
slang such as "MellorYamada" , "kepsilon", "komega", and generic length scale equation all mean.
The first paper we'll be reading is:
This paper reviews the basics of zero, one, and 2 equation turbulence models, in unstratified
flow conditions. The whole point is to know what eddy viscosity to use in equations for the mean flow.
For further background see the Turbulence Chapter of Kundu, in particular the subsection
"The Kinetic Energy Budget of Mean (& Turbulent) Flow".
