Model Equation for Nonhomogeneous Turbulence
Abstract
The equation for the onepoint turbulent distribution function is closed by assuming a relaxation model for the pressure fluctuation term and several other less critical approximations. The resulting equation is solved for a class of rectilinear flows and for decay of a periodic wake. Good agreement with available experiments is found. A theory of turbulent transport coefficients is derived in a certain approximation.
