Abstract : Dynamical systems techniques were being developed and applied to problems of transport in fluid flows, e.g., turbulent heat transfer. Earlier successful development for two-dimensional flows were extended to include the effect of diffusion in the presence of a wall, to investigate steady and unsteady three-dimensional effects, and to study interface dynamics.
