This booklet includes contributions by means of former scholars, colleagues and neighbors of Professor John L. Lumley, at the social gathering of his sixtieth birthday, in reputation of his huge, immense influence at the development of turbulence study. numerous experimental, computational and theoretical subject matters, together with turbulence modeling, direct numerical simulations, compressible turbulence, turbulent shear flows, coherent buildings and the right kind Orthogonal Decomposition are contained herein. the range and scope of those contributions are extra acknowledgment of John Lumley's broad ranging impact within the box of turbulence. the big variety of contributions via the authors, a lot of whom have been contributors within the Lumley Symposium: contemporary advancements in Turbulence (held at ICASE, NASA Langley examine heart on November 12 & thirteen, 1990), has offered us with the original opportu nity to pick a number of numerical and theoretical papers for inclusion within the magazine Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics for which Professor Lumley serves as Editor. prolonged Abstracts of those pa pers are integrated during this quantity and are competently marked. The targeted factor of TCFD will look this 12 months and may function an extra tribute to John Lumley. As is generally the case, the efforts of others have considerably eased our initiatives. we wish to specific our deep appreciation to Drs. R.
