This course on turbulence modeling begins with a careful discussion of turbulence physics in the context of modeling. The exact equations governing the Reynolds stresses, and the ways in which these equations can be closed, is outlined. The course begins with the simplest turbulence models and charts a course leading to some of the most complex models that have been applied to a nontrivial turbulent flow problem. The course stresses the need to achieve a balance amongst the physics of turbulence, mathematical tools required to solve turbulence-model equations, and common numerical problems attending use of such equations.
