\ˈtər-byə-lən(t)s\
etymology:
Function: noun.

1: The question of the effects of turbulence may be approached in several different ways. On the one hand, there are the destructive effects of turbulent flows, which have made this phenomenon something to be tamed and suppressed ever since the engineering feats of the Roman Empire. On the other hand, there is the more recent concern regarding the complex internal structure and dynamics of turbulence, a subject that has generated a great amount of scientific research in the last three decades and has evolved into the discipline called “chaos”.[1]
