Objective: Wave turbulence and fluid turbulence belong to the same class of turbulent states made of a large number of nonlinearly coupled degrees of freedom driven far from equilibrium.
Scientists resort to high performance computing techniques, along with experiments and theoretical simplifications to study the phenomena, but a complete theory of turbulence is still lacking, making fluid turbulence one of the most important unsolved problems in physics today.
Fluid turbulence is still described using a (k-[epsilon]), but the modification of the continuity equation leads to extra terms in the k-equation, [epsilon]-equation and for energy and vapor mass fraction equations.
