Abstract : The work deals with the nature of turbulent motion. The general equations of turbulent flow are described and the fundamental difficulty inherent in the formulation of the problem is demonstrated. From these equations, some important consequences and information of a general nature are derived and applied to a simple wall turbulence problem. A solution is obtained with the aid of a minimum number of auxiliary hypotheses. The problem is first solved assuming an incompressible fluid and then methods are used to permit the utilization of the incompressible results on compressible flow problems. Some attempts to put turbulence theory on a completely rational basis are explored. (Author)
