streamlines. In the mixing process, slow-moving fluid is invigorated and speeded up bynearby fast-moving fluid, while the latter, in turn, is slowed down.Turbulent flows are far more common than laminar flows, both in nature and inengineering devices. For example, the flow of water in rivers, the wakes extending fromobjects flying through the air and from ships on the sea, and the motion of the air in theatmosphere are practically always turbulent.
