About the Authors
  • Turbulent Flows is an up-to-date and comprehensive graduate text on this important topic in fluid dynamics. The book consists of two parts: Part I provides a general introduction to turbulent flows, how they behave, how they can be described quantitatively, and their fundamental physical processes. Part II is concerned with different approaches for modeling, or simulating, turbulent flows. Key appendices present the necessary mathematical techniques. While primarily intended for engineering graduate students, this book will also be valuable to students in applied mathematics, physics, oceanography and atmospheric sciences, as well as to researchers and practicing engineers.

    • Includes nearly 400 instructional exercises
    • Provides comprehensive appendices describing the mathematical techniques used
    • Contains copious figures including experimental results

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book is a welcome addition to the literature on turbulence. It will serve well as a textbook." Journal of Fluid Mechanics

    "The author made a strong pedagogical effort in writing this book. The text is supplemented by many exercises that can give a good support for courses on this subject. Moreover, most of what an engineer needs to know about the subject of fluid turbulence is covered in reasonable depth. This text is a welcome addition to the literature on turbulence, since it is the first book dedicated to the modeling of turbulence and, hence, fully dedicated to engineering students." Mathematical Reviews

    "The book is intended as a graduate text designed for teaching is a complete success. The author managed, in an excellent way, the balance between classical theory, research results, and phenomenological observations... really fills the gap between the excellent (but sometimes dated) old classical books and the recent specific monographs focused on particular aspects of turbulence. This reviewer strongly recommends the purchase of Turbulent Flows to all students and researchers whose field of interest is in turbulent flows and their numerical modeling. The purchase of this book by libraries should be considered a 'must' since the text can be classified as one of the pearls in the field." Applied Mechanics Reviews

    "Pope's book represents the outstading contribution to the pedagogy of turbulence since Tennekes and Lumley's book...Not only does it present turbulence fundamentals in a lucid and readable manner, it also utilizes in an optimum manner various tools of learning and teaching turbulence: physical insight, mathematical derivations, scaling arguments, and experimental and DNS data...the book should be well received in both academia and industry. It will be useful to students entering the feild of turbulence as well as to experienced researchers and practicing engineers." AIAA Jrnl
