Dynamical equations for high-order structure functions, and a comparison of a mean-field theory with experiments in three-dimensional turbulence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An attempt was made to clarify the closure assumptions, and assess the value of the mean-field approach by providing experimental comparisons for theoretical predictions. It was shown that the direct numerical simulations data at some high Reynolds number is the best resource for carrying this work forward.
