Prof. P.K. Yeung Paper Featured in Journal of Fluid Mechanics New Initiative
Prof. P.K. Yeung is lead author of a paper featured as a Focus on Fluids (FoF) article in the June 2012 issue of the Journal of Fluid Mechanics (JFM).
Turbulent flows are ubiquitous in nature and engineering, and a problem of great complexity for which high-performance computing is holding much potential for advances in fundamental understanding. Prof. Yeung's paper (Vol 700, pp 5-15, June 2012, co-authored with D.A. Donzis and K.R. Sreenivasan) is highlighted by the editors of JFM, via inclusion in the notable FoF series, for its exciting contributions to turbulence statistics.
One FoF article is selected each month for JFM papers of particular significance, and an expert in the field provides a commentray on the context, importance and implications of the paper (for details, see pp. 1-4 of JFM Vol 700).
