Continuum Methods of Physical Modeling
The book unifies classical continuum mechanics and turbulence modeling, i.e. the same fundamental concepts are used to derive model equations for material behaviour and turbulence closure and complements these with methods of dimensional analysis. The intention is to equip the reader with the ability to understand the complex nonlinear modeling in material behaviour and turbulence closure as well as to derive or invent his own models. Examples are mostly taken from environmental physics and geophysics.
There seems to be no other book that treats turbulence as a subfield of continuum mechanicsEmphasizes the applications to geophysics and the environmental sciences
