Vortices thread through the three-dimensions of a turbulent fluid, interlocking and exchanging energy between scales, from large to small.
The theoretical calculations and modeling of heat transfer processes in converting solar energy in the manufactured heat exchange unit of the photoenergy plant are conducted, which showed that the most efficient is a plate heat exchanger equipped with the implementation in it of turbulent fluid flow, which achieves heat transfer coefficient of about 18 kW/([m.sup.2] x K).

2) we used an incompressible, permanent and turbulent fluid. To ensure itself of the establishment of the thermal mode, dynamic and periodic, our study of this flow will be carried out far from the entry and the exit.
The governing equations of continuity, conservation of momentum, and energy are used to solve the forced turbulent fluid flow and heat transfer in the artificially roughened solar air heater duct.
Sharma said that the interesting puzzle has always been how to predict the seemingly chaotic motion of a turbulent fluid. Although very complicated, scientists have always observed recurring patterns in turbulence.
One models turbulent flows as synthetic random fields with certain statistics and features mimicking those of turbulent fluid in the regime of interest.
