Abstract
The energy equation for turbulent flow has been derived in terms of correlation tensors of second order, where the correlation tensors are the functions of space coordinates, distance between two points and time. An independent variable has been introduced in order to differentiate between the effects of distance and location. To reveal the relation of turbulent energy between two points, one point has been taken as the origin of the coordinate system. Correlation between pressure fluctuations and velocity fluctuations at the two points of flow field is applied to the turbulent energy equation.
