Turbulence Processes and Simple Closure Schemes
The origin of the closure problem in turbulence was discussed in some of the earlier papers in this volume. Herein we briefly review the closure problem and introduce simple closure schemes in order to obtain solutions for some simple flows. These solutions will be used to illustrate the processes occurring in turbulence. Closure by specification of initial conditions will then be considered. Finally, practical closure schemes for more complicated flows, such as boundary layers and pipe flows, will be discussed.
