By G. K. Batchelor
It is a reissue of Professor Batchelor's textual content at the conception of turbulent movement, which used to be first released by means of Cambridge Unviersity Press in 1953. It remains to be greatly mentioned within the expert literature of fluid mechanics, yet has no longer been to be had for a number of years. This vintage account comprises an creation to the learn of homogeneous turbulence, together with its mathematic illustration and kinematics. Linear difficulties, similar to the randomly-perturbed harmonic oscillator and turbulent move via a cord gauze, are then taken care of. the writer additionally offers the overall dynamics of degradation, common equilibrium concept, and the decay of energy-containing eddies. there's a renewed curiosity in turbulent movement, which reveals functions in atmospheric physics, fluid mechanics, astrophysics, and planetary technology.
