Unformatted text preview: swirling eddies, which are in all directions. Note : However, a turbulent flow can be 1D or 2D 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 3D, unsteady, chaotic swirling eddies.) Occurs at low Reynolds numbers. Occurs at high Reynolds numbers....
