High-speed free shear layers with molecular non-equilibrium: An example of the fluids information triad
In this invited paper, we describe how the Fluids Information Triad ideas apply to an ongoing university research project. The principal research objective of the project is improved basic understanding and prediction capabilities of the turbulence transport processes for flows experiencing molecular non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The research approach utilizing theoretical modeling, experimentation and computation is described in detail. Copyright 2008 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.
