Abstract

A modified statistical theory of turbulence based on a scale invariant model of statistical mechanics is described. Hierarchies of statistical fields from cosmic to Planck scale are examined. The predicted velocity profiles for turbulent boundary layer over a flat plate at four consecutive scales of LED, LCD, LMD, and LAD are shown to be in close agreement with the experimental observations. The generalized definitions of "solid", "liquid", and "gas" phases are introduced and a modified quantum mechanical criterion for transition to turbulence based on Poincaré stress is presented.
