Advances In Coastal And Ocean Engineering, Vol 8: Interaction Of Strong Turbulence With Free Surfaces
Interaction of Strong Turbulence with Free Surfaces
Brocchini Maurizio, Liu Philip L F, Peregrine D Howell
This book is a useful source of ideas and information for scientists whose work involves understanding and modelling turbulent flows with free surfaces. It has the following merits: (1) It provides a framework for developing the analysis of this field, which, although important, has received only limited study; (2) It recognizes the importance of the two-phase nature of strongly disturbed free surface flows, with both natural and technological applications; (3) It suggests possible lines of future research (especially experimental) to quantify the characteristics of flow regimes which are mainly known qualitatively at present.
