Unformatted text preview: swirling eddies, which are in all directions. Note : However, a turbulent flow can be 1-D or 2-D in the mean . Has regular, predictable behavior Has irregular or chaotic behavior (cannot predict exactly – there is some randomness associated with any turbulent flow. Analytical solutions are possible (see Chapter 9). No analytical solutions exist! (It is too complicated, again because of the 3-D, unsteady, chaotic swirling eddies.) Occurs at low Reynolds numbers. Occurs at high Reynolds numbers....
