# Dissipation of energy in the locally isotropic turbulence

@article{Kolmogorov1991DissipationOE, title={Dissipation of energy in the locally isotropic turbulence}, author={Andrei N. Kolmogorov}, journal={Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series A: Mathematical and Physical Sciences}, year={1991}, volume={434}, pages={15 - 17} }

In my note (Kolmogorov 1941a) I defined the notion of local isotropy and introduced the quantities Bdd(r)=[ud(M′)−ud(M)]2,¯[un(M′)−un(M)¯]2, where r denotes the distance between the points M and M', ud(M) and ud(M') are the velocity components in the direction MM'¯¯ at the points Mand M', and un(M) and un(M') are the velocity components at the points M andM' in some direction, perpendicular to MM'.

The assumption of scale-invariance, when taken in conjunction with the symmetries of the Navier–Stokes equation, is shown to lead to the energy spectrum E(k) = αε2/3Tk−5/3, in the limit of infinite…

In his first 1941 paper Kolmogorov assumed that the velocity has increments that are homogeneous and independent of the velocity at a suitable reference point. This assumption of local homogeneity is…

The sweeping decorrelation hypothesis and energy–inertial scale interaction in high Reynolds number flows

The random sweeping decorrelation hypothesis was analysed theoretically and experimentally in terms of the higher-order velocity structure functions $D_{u_i}^{(m)}(r) = \left< [u_i^m(x + r) -…

It is shown that, if a reasonable definition of the effective step size of the process is applied, this result holds independently of the nesting structure, and the stochastic process of the velocity u as a function of the spatial position x is analyzed.

Local 4/5-law and energy dissipation anomaly in turbulence

A strong local form of the `4/3-law' in turbulent flow has been proved recently by Duchon and Robert for a triple moment of velocity increments averaged over both a bounded spacetime region and…

It is found that the moment of the dissipation of kinetic energy of order n is completely determined by 〈(∂u(1)/∂x(1))(2n)〉 and an order- (and viscosity-) dependent coefficient for all n under the assumption of (local) isotropy.
