Chaos Theory for me!

  1. May 16, 2008 #1
    Hi!
    i just wanted to know if the famous Chaos Theory has got any direct application in Aeronautics.
    i've come across some information regarding this. the theory finds quite a bit of use in the study of turbulence, but then i'm unable to find some good reference material to get more relevant information from.

    i had earlier posted this in the engineering section.
    but the engineers dont seem to be much interested in it! :D

    Pls help me!

    i think chaos theory has some applications in ramjet engines at supersonic speeds... when the jet gets going upwards of mach 3 the air behaves much differently when passing through the engine
