Section Information

Associate Editor: Prof. Dr. Ramesh K. Agarwal

Aim: The aim of this section is to invite contributions from scientific community engaged in foundational, modeling and computational, and experimental research in turbulence. Turbulent flow investigations in all physical, biological and engineering sciences are welcome.

Scope: Foundational papers in turbulence may include statistical methods and theories, Chaos theory and reduced order models, and other novel formulations and approaches. Modeling and computational methods may include RANS Models, LES, WM-LES, WR-LES, DES/DDES/IDDES, Machine Learning & Data Driven Modeling, Transition Modeling, Intermittancy, Uncertainty Quantification of Turbulence Models, and DNS. Experimental methods may include HWA, LDV, PIV and flow visualization techniques. Applications may include atmospheric, oceanic and other nature-occuring flows, boiological/biomimitic flows, and flows related to industries such as aircraft, turbomachinery, automotive, agriculture, energy, environment etc. Papers related to any aspect of turbulence are welcome.
