Book description

An up-to-date comprehensive text useful for graduate students and academic researchers in the field of energy transfers in fluid flows. The initial part of the text covers discussion on energy transfer formalism in hydrodynamics and the latter part covers applications including passive scalar, buoyancy driven flows, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), dynamo, rotating flows and compressible flows. Energy transfers among large-scale modes play a critical role in nonlinear instabilities and pattern formation and is discussed comprehensively in the chapter on buoyancy-driven flows. It derives formulae to compute Kolmogorov's energy flux, shell-to-shell energy transfers and locality. The book discusses the concept of energy transfer formalism which helps in calculating anisotropic turbulence.


'This book is an outcome of the author’s life-long obsession with the mechanism of energy transfers in turbulent flows.'

Jayant Bhattacharjee - Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science

'Nicely organized in parts devoted to increasingly complex flows, it is a perfect book to explore the theoretical description of Navier-Stokes turbulence as well as flows with scalars, vectors and more exotic systems.'

Daniele Carati - Université Libre de Bruxelles

'This comprehensive book discusses an impressive array of applications from a unified point of view.'

Arnab Rai Choudhuri - Indian Institute of Science

'The monograph will be an invaluable resource to students and researchers interested in the application of energy transfer theory to fluids and magnetofluids.'

Melvyn Goldstein - NASA

'This book is an outstanding achievement whose many examples and illustrations make the reading as fluid as the subject matter.'

Franck Plunian - Université Grenoble Alpes

'It is a self-contained monograph which will certainly be of direct use to a large audience, from graduate students to scholars and researchers.'

Annick Pouquet - University of Colorado, Boulder

'This book, addressed to graduate students and researchers, covers vast areas of fluid dynamics and presents each domain in a precise manner.'

Maurice Rossi - Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris

'This monograph clearly articulates the multiscale energy transfer perspectives for turbulent flows, advanced prominently by the author and his co-workers.'

K. R. Sreenivasan - New York University

'This impressive monograph will serve as a highly valuable reference to researchers in turbulence and other fields for many years to come.'

P. K. Yeung - Georgia Institute of Technology
