Rigorous estimates of small scales in turbulent flows Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We derive rigorous bounds on the length scale of determining local averages (volume elements) for the 3-D Navier-Stokes Equations. These length scale estimates are related to Kolmogorov's notion of a dissipation length scale in turbulent flows. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
