Abstract : The purpose of this report is to discuss the system of a statistical theory of turbulence in general cases from isotropic turbulence to turbulent boundary layer. In the first three chapters, mathematical formulations are given to the Euler correlation or the Reynolds stress, according to a basic physical picture of vortex chaos motion in which many kinds of vortices are carried along the flow in agitating situations. When the formula is combined with the Reynolds equations, quantitative discussions are developed by dividing the cases into two fundamental groups of wake or jet flow in Chapters Four through Seven and of boundary layer or pipe flow in Chapters Eight and Nine.
