Kolmogorov Turbulence

Professor Thomas Lundgren

Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics
University of Minnesota


The classical Kolmogorov inertial range turbulence theory is derived from first principals by analysis of the Navier-Stokes equation using a method of matched asymptotic expansions (essentially boundary layer theory). Reynolds number dependent corrections to the one-third power laws are found which agree with experiment.
