A Review of Some Monte Carlo Simulation Methods for Turbulent Systems

Peter R. Kramer
2001 Monte Carlo Methods and Applications  
We provide a brief overview of some Monte Carlo methods which have been used to simulate systems with a turbulent fluid component. We discuss two main classes of simulation approaches: an "Eulerian" class which is based on a random velocity field model defined on a fixed coordinate system, and a "Lagrangian" class in which the motion of fluid particles and immersed particles are instead stochastically modeled. The main aim of this article is to expose these novel simulation approaches to
