Abstract

This lecture will provide an introduction to turbulence and turbulence modeling. The following main topics will be covered: 1) Turbulence theory (Scales, Kolmogorov theory, turbulence spectrum), 2) Reynolds-averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) approach (statistical modeling, turbulence models, limitations), 3) large eddy simulation (LES) (formulation, filtering, numerical solution, dynamic modeling). 
Further, a brief overview of emerging trends and challenges in modeling will be presented.
