This survey of the current state of the art in computational models for turbulent reacting flows carefully analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the various techniques described. Rodney Fox focuses on the formulation of practical models as opposed to numerical issues arising from their solution. He develops a theoretical framework based on the one-point, one-time joint probability density function (PDF). The study reveals that all commonly employed models for turbulent reacting flows can be formulated in terms of the joint PDF of the chemical species and enthalpy.

Rodney O. Fox received his PhD from Kansas State University and is currently the Glenn Murphy Professor of Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Iowa State University. He has held visiting positions at Stanford University and at the CNRS Laboratory in Rouen, France, and has been an invited professor at ENSIC in Nancy, France, Politecnico di Torino, Italy, and Aalborg University, Denmark. He is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award and has published over 65 scientific papers.


'Fox has become a master of the material described in the book, and has made significant contributions to the subject. The writing is clear and authoritative, and contains ample historical and modern references. The book is attractively presented ...'. Journal of Fluid Mechanics
