ABSTRACT
Presents evidence of a strong analogy between the statistical behavior of a confined turbulent flow and that of a model of the critical behavior of a ferromagnet. Findings on the power consumption measured in turbulent-flow experiments and the magnetization at the critical point of the ferromagnet; Similarity in the finite-size corrections to the fluctuation statistics.
