2.27 Turbulent and Separated Flows

Class Info

Governing equations, and statistical and dynamical theories of turbulence. Isotropic homogeneous turbulence, near wall turbulence, effects of free surface and surfactants and moving body boundary. Direct numerical simulations, large eddy simulations and sub-grid scale modeling, Reynolds-Average Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations and RANS turbulence models. Flow instability and transitions, almost parallel flows and inviscid and viscous instabilities. Laminar and turbulent separation, expansion flows, separated flows past bluff and streamlined bodies; flow induced vibrations.

This class has 2.20, 2.25, and 18.075 as prerequisites.

2.27 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by A. Techet and D. Yue.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
