    The aim of these lecture notes is to introduce the reader to Reynolds stress equation model and other models of turbulence and also to introduce him to the computational schemes used to solve turbulence flow problems. In Chapter two the transport equations for Reynolds stresses and dissipation rates are derived. In Chapter three Reynolds stress model of Launder, Reece and Rodi (1975) is explained and simpler models are deduced. Chapter four describes13; the Patankar-Spalding (1970) technique for parabolic flow. Chapter five contains description of Pun and Spalding (1977) code for elliptic flows. Modifications to k-6 model for effect of curvature and severe adverse pressure gradient are gi ven in Chapter six.
