Turbulence for (and by) amateurs
by Denis Bernard
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 37
Series of lectures on statistical turbulence written for amateurs but not experts. Elementary aspects and problems of turbulence in two and three dimensional Navier-Stokes equation are introduced. A few properties of scalar turbulence and transport phenomena in turbulent flows are described. Kraichnan's model of passive advection is discussed a bit more precisely.

The flow of fluids at branching junctions plays important roles in most biological flow systems. The present paper highlights some key issues related to the flow of fluids at these junctions with special emphasis on the biological flow networks.

Mixing is relevant to many areas of science and engineering, including the pharmaceutical and food industries, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, etc. In all these situations one goal is to improve the degree of homogenisation of a substance.

The author demonstrates a stable Lagrangian solid modeling method, tracking the interactions of solid mass particles, rather than using a meshed grid. This method avoids the problem of tensile instability seen with Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics.
