Free Turbulent Flow

Types of Free Turbulent Flows

In Chapter 9 we primarily discussed the type of turbulent flow which is termed wall turbulence emphasizing the effect of wall shear stress on the turbulence, its production and dissipation. This chapter deals with the type of turbulence which is not confined by solid walls.
