Velocity gradient tensor, Aij � �ui/�xj, in a turbulence flow field is modelled by separating the treatment of intermittent magnitude (A = �AijAij) from that of the more universal normalised velocity gradient tensor, bij � Aij/A. The boundedness and compactness of the bij-space along with its universal dynamics allow for the development of models that are reasonably insensitive to Reynolds number. The near-lognormality of the magnitude A is then exploited to derive a model based on a modified Ornstein�Uhlenbeck process. These models are developed using data-driven strategies employing high-fidelity forced isotropic turbulence data sets. A posteriori model results agree well with direct numerical simulation data over a wide range of velocity-gradient features and Reynolds numbers. © The Author(s), 2024.
