Abstract : Rapid advances in electronic information processing capabilities are providing powerful tools for turbulence research. Massive quantities of experimental information are necessary to characterize most turbulent flows, given the primitive nature of theoretical understanding in the field. Analytical treatments are equally dependent on powerful, high speed computers to cope with the most trucated form of the full turbulence problem. Use of digital techniques has great potential for progress in turbulence research but also introduces a new set of difficulties which must be overcome for this potential to be realized.
