Turbulent problems in industrial applications are predominantly solved using Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) turbulence models. The accuracy of the RANS models is limited due to closure assumptions that induce uncertainty into the RANS modeling. We propose the use of deep learning algorithms via convolution neural networks along with data from direct numerical simulations to extract the optimal set of features that explain the evolution of turbulent flow statistics. Statistical tests are

These features are then used to develop improved partial differential equations that can replace classical Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes models and show improvement in the accuracy of the predictions.
