What is it about?
This paper develops a new approach for modeling high Reynolds number turbulent flows by recasting the Navier-Stokes equations in a new form that uses the flow flexion as the primary dependent variable instead of the fluid velocity. The new form allows us to better track the evolution of sharp flow gradients in turbulent flows.
