Scaling the near-wall axial turbulent stress in the zero pressure gradient boundary layer Academic Article uri icon


  • Based upon high resolution LDA measurements over a range of momentum deficit thickness Reynolds numbers (R= Ux /) from 1430 to 31 000, DeGraaff and Eaton [J. Fluid Mech. 422, 319 (2000)] propose a new mixed scaling for the near-wall region profile of the axial turbulent stress, u2. The present results support the validity of this scaling over an extended Reynolds number range 1000 R 5 x 106. 2001 American Institute of Physics.
