The Kolmogorov microscales represent that smallest scale in turbulent flows. The defining equations were developed by dimensional analysis of the input viscosity and energy dissipation rate.
Enter inputs in the blue boxes and choose convenient units from the menus. The results will appear in the orange output boxes.
