Dynamical system approach and attracting manifolds in \(k\)-\(\varepsilon\) model of turbulent jet. (English) Zbl 1165.37033

The \(k\)-\(\varepsilon\) model of expanding turbulence shaped as a plane jet is analysed. Profiles of energy, dissipation rate and velocity across the jet are sought in the form of power series. The series coefficients satisfy a nonlinear dynamical system with a few slow variables. Based on these variables, an attractor in the form of a system of algebraic equations linking fast and slow variables is found. The approach allows to naturally define the position of the front of turbulence.
