One of the best courses I ever read. I wish to see it updated. If we donate, does MIT promise to update this course?

 

Special thanks for the poetic parts like this:

Or you are standing at the kitchen sink, washing root vegetables fresh from the garden. The fine fraction of the loosened sediment is carried in suspension down the drain, never to be seen again, but the coarser fraction is immediately formed into small- scale streaks on the surface of the sink, beneath the fast-flowing water headed for the drain. Go back to the final section in Chapter 4, on coherent structures in turbulent flow, for the dynamics behind these bed-load streaks.

If you’re after unsteady fluid dynamics processes that last longer than ten Kolmogorov time scale units (most of the processes do, besides the viscous tilting we’re been working on for some time or turbulent entrainment across a thin interface) then you need to stream and store your data. We solved it two ways: long-duration streaming and/or real-time image processing (see Kreizer and Liberzon, Exp. Fluids, 2010)
