Turbulent Flow Simulation: Future Needs

  • Joel H. Ferziger
Part of the Progress in Scientific Computing book series (PSC, volume 6)


A classification of approaches to the simulation of turbulent flows according to the kind of averaging employed was given by Kline et al. (1978). This paper, concerns three types of methods: ones based on time or ensemble-averaged equations, large eddy simulation, and full simulation. Other methods are important but will not be dealt with.
