A rational approach to transport in turbulent flow must be based on the primary ingredients of turbulent transport, i.
In this paper, an overview of the common methods of turbulent flow drag reduction and shark-inspired surface-riblet for drag reduction is presented first.
But when panting, the overall resistance throughout the lung will be increased, mainly due to the increased turbulent flow from the larger airways.
A steady 2D turbulent flow is computed in the computational domain using the continuity equation and the Navier-Stokes equation:
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Physicists working in space plasmas made clever use of the Ulysses spacecraft and the solar minimum to create a massive virtual lab bench to provide a unique test for the science underlying turbulent flows.

The CTM proceeds from presenting the velocity of the turbulent flow field v as the sum v = u + v', where u = <v>, in which (and henceforth) angular brackets denote statistical averaging, and v' is the fluctuating constituent of the flow velocity.
