Axisymmetric form of Kármán-Howarth equation and its limiting forms

Abstract : Kinematics and dynamics of homogeneous axisymmetric turbulence have been derived with the assumption that the properties of the turbulence are invariant with respect to rotation about a preferred direction λ. In particular, the "axisymmetric" equivalent of Karman-Howarth "isotropic" equation is derived using Lindborg's representation of the two-point correlation tensors of homogeneous axisymmetric turbulence. When the more constraining assumption of isotropy is made, this equation reduces to the well-known Karman-Howarth equation. There are two interesting limiting forms of the axisymmetric Karman-Howarth equation: the axisymmetric form of the energy balance equation and the axisymmetric form of the vorticity balance equation.
