Peer Review[edit]

-The majority of the article is well cited.

-Very interesting material presented in a good fashion.

-Could you get a photo of a river flowing past a rock to visualize what is being said in the first paragraph?

-Reword Vortex paragraph, for example “Another possible type of turbulence is the vortex. This concept is similar to the eddy, however it applies to gases instead of liquids. In this case, there is no void created, only an area…” It was a little difficult to grasp exactly what the paragraph was saying. Also cite this section.

-Is the entire “Mesoscale ocean eddies” section information gathered from the same source [2]? If not, cite more often.

-Is the Critical Reynolds number always 2000, or is this just for certain cases? Also this needs citation.

-Can you expand on what solutions are being developed/have been developed to remedy turbulent flow in the arterial tree? This section seems incomplete.

-In the industrial processes, can you give an example of how it is used to thoroughly mix fluids and increase reaction rate. It will have a greater impact this way.

-When defining the variables for the Navier-Stokes equation, write the entire definition in the equation format, to maintain consistency with how you defined variables after previous equations. Llavecch (talk) 08:00, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Article Evaluation[edit]

So far the content of the article is heavy with descriptions, but little data or related equations have been included. The section on Mesoscale Ocean Eddies is written well, but there aren't nearly enough citations to support the arguments/descriptions made. The section on the fundamentals/math/engineering of eddies and fluid dynamics is severely lacking. Pictures/images provide a decent image/pathway of an eddy, but ultimately the article needs many more cited sources and significant development in the science/math behind eddies and fluid dynamics.

All calculations for Eddy size/speed relate back to turbulent flow equations. Should these equations be added to this page as well or is a link to the turbulence page enough? I guess that also brings up the issue of all the different applications/scenarios in which eddy flow is relevant (mixing fluids, ocean currents, blood flow, etc.) and whether each topic should be discussed in detail here or linked to another already fleshed out article. (Apologies if this is not the proper medium through which to bring up these questions/concerns).Nlhw13 (talk) 09:11, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Note to add equations/info on wall shear stress and how it relates to eddy/turbulent fluid flow. Nlhw13 (talk) 21:41, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Note to use this source http://www.fem.unicamp.br/~im450/palestras&artigos/ASME_Tubulence/cds13instruct2.pdf for more equations relating to turbulent flow. Nlhw13 (talk) 23:09, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Note to add more information about computational fluid dynamics.Nlhw13 (talk) 23:41, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
