Huge progress on wall bounded shear flows has been achieved in the past two decades. The salient progress in the field was the discovery of the wall coherence in the early 1960's. Several hundreds of papers have been published since, but there is no publication that presents this colossal amount of work in a comprehensive way. This book presents recent progresses in this area. Contents includes:- Introduction and basic concepts; Transport in wall bounded turbulent flows; Dissipation and its modeling in the inner layer; Near wall closures; Wall coherent structures and their one and multi-point detection; Genesis of coherent wall structures, streak instability, regeneration of wall quasi-streamwise vortices, self-sustaining mechanism, quasi-deterministic approach; Packets and very large structures; Dynamical system approach to wall turbulence, proper orthogonal decomposition, low order wall models, chaotic synchronization with impact to wall turbulence control.
