In many fluid flow situations there is a prior unknown global quantity, such as heat flux in convection or mass flux in pressure-driven flow, which is of overriding physical interest. Understanding how this quantity scales with the non-dimensional parameters describing the flow situation as one or more of these parameters become large (so that the flow is turbulent) is then a fundamental problem. In this talk, I will briefly review one particular approach to tackling this issue based upon optimization and then discuss how a variety of new developments augur well for future progress.
