Table of Contents
Chapter 1: Introduction and basic concepts
Chapter 2: Transport in wall bounded turbulent flows (Reynolds shear stress transport equations, rapid and slow terms, pressure fluctuations)
Chapter 3: Dissipation (Kolmogoroff scale distribution near the wall; Modeling dissipation in the inner layer; Zero-crossings and Liepmann scale.
Chapter 4: Closures (one and multi point closures in wall bounded turbulent flows)
Chapter 5: Wall coherent structures and their detection (historical outline of the discovery of wall coherence, streaks, quasi-streamwise vortices, one point detection (VITA, u, modified u-level and quadrant analysis, conditional averaging, Q2 and Lambda2 techniques).
Chapter 6: Genesis of coherent wall structures (streak instability, regeneration of wall quasi-streamwise vortices, self-sustaining mechanism, quasi-deterministic approach)
Chapter 7: Packets and very large structures (regeneration of packets of quasi-streamwise vortices and their amalgamation into very large outer structures; their comprehension and dynamical impact on the wall turbulence).
Chapter 8: Dynamical system approach to wall turbulence (proper orthogonal decomposition, low order wall models, chaotic synchronization with impact to wall turbulence control).
