Computational Models of Turbulence: The LANS–alpha Model and the Role of Global Analysis

September 26, 2005

Over the last 50 years, researchers have proposed numerous computational models of turbulence for obtaining closure. The objective of closure is to capture certain statistical features of the physical phenomenon of turbulence at computably low resolution by mimicking the average effects of the small scales on the larger ones, without calculating the former explicitly.
