About the Edition

The projects treated at the 1991 ICASE Summer Workshop on Instability, Transition and Turbulence at the NASA Langley Research Center focused on nonlinear aspects of the boundary-layer transition and on theory and modeling of turbulence, with emphasis on high-speed flows. Groups of workshop participants dealt with such topics as experimental methods, asymptotics, advanced stability, simulation, receptivity, and turbulence theory and modeling. This volume presents a summary of their results.

This book is a complete revision of the part of Monin & Yaglom's famous two-volume work "Statistical Fluid Mechanics: Mechanics of Turbulence" that deals with the theory of laminar-flow instability and transition to turbulence. It includes the considerable advances in the subject that have been made in the last 15 years or cturer: Springer. Instabilities of Flows and Transition to Turbulence has evolved into an account of the personal research interests of the author over the years. A conscious effort has been made to keep the treatment at an elementary level requiring rudimentary knowledge of calculus, the Fourier-Laplace transform, and complex analysis. ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: "Proceedings of the Workshop on Instability, Transition, and . The research areas covered in these proceedings include receptiv­ ity and roughness, nonlinear theories of transition, numerical simu­ lation of spatially evolving flows, modelling of transitional and fully turbulent flows as well as some experiments on instability and tran­ sition.

Book Description. Addressing classical material as well as new perspectives, Instabilities of Flows and Transition to Turbulence presents a concise, up-to-date treatment of theory and applications of viscous flow instability. It covers materials from classical instability to contemporary research areas including bluff body flow instability, mixed convection flows, and application areas of. Fluid instabilities show up in many places in everyday life, nature and engineering applications. An often seemingly stable system with a gradient will often give rise to the development of instability, which can cascade eventually into turbulence. Governed by the parameters of the flow and fluids, when exposed to perturbation in the system, some wavelengths will grow, while others will not. Get this from a library! Instability, Transition, and Turbulence. [M Y Hussaini; A Kumar; C L Streett] -- The projects treated at the ICASE Summer Workshop on Instability, Transition and Turbulence at the NASA Langley Research Center focused on nonlinear aspects of the boundary-layer transition and. The text then tackles instability and turbulence in jets, instability and transition in pipes and channels, and transition to turbulence in boundary layers. The book ponders on coherent structures in turbulence; interactions between large-scale coherent structures and fine-grained turbulence in free shear flows; and vortex interactions and.

  This book is an introduction to the application of nonlinear dynamics to problems of stability, chaos and turbulence arising in continuous media and their connection to dynamical systems. With an emphasis on the understanding of basic concepts, it should be of interest to nearly any science-oriented undergraduate and potentially to anyone who.
