I fixed the reference in the article to point to the right lecture at the same website. --Drphysics 21:09, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

I changed the definition to "Turbulence Kinetic Energy." The term Turbulent is really incorrect because it implies there exists kinetic energy which is turbulent in nature. Turbulence Kinetic Energy is the accepted version of TKE for many organizations like the American Meteorological Society. This definition clearly describes that there exists kinetic energy associated with turbulence. Gibbz84 (talk) 00:09, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

In the "Boundary conditions" section is the equation k = 3/2(UI)^2 yet there is so no reference for it. Could someone provide a reference for it and otherwise expand on the utility of the equation? Thanks. Mr Humidty (talk) 16:16, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

It would be useful to have the units mentioned in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 157.193.1.197 (talk) 22:16, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

It says "Assuming density and viscosity both constant, the full form of the TKE equation is:" and then it shows density fluctuations? Shouldn't this assumptions statement be modified to just assume viscosity is constant? --User:Gibsonb357 21:38, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
