Turbulence in fluid flows remains an unsolved problem, at once of great technological relevance and scientific interest, on which every available tuol-theoretical, numerical, experimental-has been used. With the advent of computers engineers have invented many ad hoc mathematical models, and used them with effect in limited classes of flows. Direct ('exactquot;) numerical solution of the governing13; equations can offer great insight at modest Reynolds numbers, and has just now become possible in India with the availability of a powerful parallel computer at the National Aeronautical Laboratory, Bangalore. An assessment of the various ways in which computer power can be13; harnessed for tackling the problem of turbulent flows is presented.
