Hotwire velocity measurements are carried out in a turbulent boundary layer over a rough wall consisting of transverse circular rods, with a ratio of 8 between the spacing (w) of two consecutive rods and the rod height (k). The pressure distribution around the roughness element is used to accurately measure the mean friction velocity (Ut) and the error in the origin. It is found that Ut remained practically constant in the streamwise direction suggesting that the boundary layer over this surface is evolving in a selfsimilar manner. This is further corroborated by the similarity observed at all scales of motion, in the region 0.2=y/d=0.6, as reflected in the constancy of Reynolds number (RÂ¿) based on Taylor's microscale and the collapse of Kolmogorov normalized velocity spectra at all wavenumbers.A scalebyscale budget for the secondorder structure function <(du)2> (du=u(x+r)u(x), where u is the fluctuating streamwise velocity component and r is the longitudinal separation) is carried out to investigate the energy distribution amongst different scales in the boundary layer. It is found that while the small scales are controlled by the viscosity, intermediate scales over which the transfer of energy (or <(du)3>) is important are affected by mechanisms induced by the largescale inhomogeneities in the flow, such as production, advection and turbulent diffusion. For example, there are nonnegligible contributions from the largescale inhomogeneity to the budget at scales of the order of Â¿, the Taylor microscale, in the region of the boundary layer extending from y/d=0.2 to 0.6 (d is the boundary layer thickness).

A general framework of selfpreservation (SP) is established, based on the transport equation of the secondorder longitudinal velocity structure function in decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence (HIT). The analysis introduces the skewness of the longitudinal velocity increment, S(r, t) (r and t are space increment and time), as an SP controlling parameter. The present SP framework allows a critical appraisal of the specific assumptions that have been made in previous SP analyses. It is shown that SP is achieved when S(r, t) varies in a selfsimilar manner, i.e. S=c(t)f(r/l) where l is a scaling length, and c(t) and f(r/l) are dimensionless functions of time and (r/l), respectively. When c(t) is constant, l can be identified with the Kolmogorov length scale Â¿, even when the Reynolds number is relatively small. On the other hand, the Taylor microscale Â¿ is a relevant SP length scale only when certain conditions are met. The decay law for the turbulent kinetic energy (k) ensuing from the present SP is a generalization of the existing laws and can be expressed as k ~ (tt0)^{n}+B, where B is a constant representing the energy of the motions whose scales are excluded from the SP range of scales. When B = 0, SP is achieved at all scales of motion and Â¿ becomes a relevant scaling length together with Â¿. The analysis underlines the relation between the initial conditions and the powerlaw exponent n and also provides a link between them. In particular, an expression relating n to the initial values of the scaling length and velocity is developed. Finally, the present SP analysis is consistent with both experimental grid turbulence data and the eddydamped quasinormal Markovian numerical simulation of decaying HIT by Meldi & Sagaut (J. Turbul., vol. 14, 2013, pp. 2453).

For homogeneous isotropic turbulence approximated by grid turbulence, velocity and temperature fluctuations decay under the effects of viscosity and thermal diffusivity of the fluid. In the selfsimilar region of grid flow, there is no mean shear and no turbulence production, and the decay rate is well represented by a power law; this is supported by the present measurements in three different grid flows and by previously published data for passivegrid turbulence obtained over different ranges of streamwise distance and/or Reynolds number. The grid flow is slightly heated so that temperature acts as a passive scalar. From dimensional analysis and empirical powerlaw correlations, relations for basic flow parameters, such as the Kolmogorov, Taylor, and Corrsin microscales, and the Reynolds and PÃ©clet numbers, are established as functions of the normalized streamwise distance downstream of the grid. With these relations, it is possible to determine the flow parameters for a specific passivegrid geometry or, more generally, a specific set of initial conditions.

A numerical simulation based on the lattice Boltzmann method is carried out in the wake of a square cylinder with the view to investigating possible surrogates for the instantaneous turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate, Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}, as well as its mean value, \documentclass[12pt]{minimal}\begin{document}$\overline{\epsilon }$\end{document}Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}. Various surrogate approximations of Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}, based on local isotropy (Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}iso), local axisymmetry along the streamwise direction x (Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}a, x) and the transverse direction y (Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}a, y), local homogeneity (Ie{cyrillic,ukrainian}hom), and homogeneity in the transverse plane, (Ie{cyrillic,ukrainian}4x), are assessed. All the approximations are in agreement with \documentclass[12pt]{minimal}\begin{document}$\overline{\epsilon }$\end{document}Ie{cyrillic,ukrainian}when the distance downstream of the obstacle is larger than about 40 diameters. Closer to the obstacle, the agreement remains reasonable only for \documentclass[12pt]{minimal}\begin{document}$\overline{\epsilon }_{a,x}$\end{document}Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}a,x, \documentclass[12pt]{minimal}\begin{document}$\overline{\epsilon }{hom}$\end{document}?hom and \documentclass[12pt]{minimal}\begin{document}$\overline{\epsilon }{4x}$\end{document}Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}4x. The probability density functions (PDF) and joint PDFs of Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian} and its surrogates show that Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}4x correlates best withIe{cyrillic, ukrainian}while ?iso and Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}hom present the smallest correlation. The results indicate that Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}4x is a very good surrogate for Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}and can be used for correctly determining the behaviour of Ie{cyrillic, ukrainian}.

This article focuses on the effect that two different mesh grids have on the structure of the mixing layer of an axisymmetric jet. Detailed measurements of mean velocity and turbulent velocity fluctuations are made with an X hotwire probe in the range 0.5 = x/d = 10, where x is the longitudinal distance from the nozzle exit plane and d is the nozzle diameter. The grids are introduced at two locationsone location just downstream of the nozzle exit plane and the other location upstream of the nozzle exit plane in order to perturb the nozzle exit boundary layer. One mesh completely covers the nozzle (full mesh or FM) and the other mesh covers the central, highspeed zone (disk mesh or DM). With reference to the undisturbed jet, FM yields a significant reduction in the turbulence intensity and width of the shear layer, whereas DM enhances the turbulence intensity and increases the width of the shear layer. Both grids suppress the formation of the KelvinHelmholtz instability in the mixing layer. Results are presented, mainly at x/d = 5 and 6 in both the spectral domain and physical space. In the latter context, secondand thirdorder structure functions associated with u (the longitudinal velocity fluctuation) and v (the lateral or radial velocity fluctuation) are presented only for the flow perturbed by placing the mesh outside the nozzle. All mesh geometries have a more significant effect on the secondorder structure function of u than on that of v. The thirdorder energy transfer term is affected in such a way that, relative to the undisturbed jet, its peak location is shifted to a smaller scale when FM is used and to a larger scale with DM. This is consistent with our observations that FM reduces the turbulence in the shear layer while DM enhances it. It is suggested that the largescale vortices that are formed at the edge of the grids play a significant role in the transfer of energy. Â© 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

This paper presents a numerical study of an investigation of a fluid flow through a rotating rectangular straight duct in the presence of magnetic field. The straight duct of rectangular crosssection rotates at a constant angular velocity about the centre of the duct crosssection is same as the axis of the magnetic field along the positive direction in the stream wise direction of the flows. Numerical calculation is based on the Magneto hydrodynamics incompressible viscous steady fluid model whereas Spectral method is applied as a main tool. Flow depends on the Magnetic parameter, Dean number and Taylor number. One of the interesting phenomena of the fluid flow is the solution curve and the flow structures in case of rotation of the duct axis. The calculation are carried out for 5 = Mg = 50000, 50 = Tr 100000, Dn 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 where the aspect ratio Â¿ 3.0. The maximum axial flow will be shifted to the centre from the wall and turn into the ring shape under the effects of high magnetic parameter and large Taylor number whereas the fluid particles strength is weak.

A proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) analysis is carried out with particle image velocity (PIV) measurements of a turbulent boundary layer over a rough wall made of transverse square bars. Two bar spacings were investigated (w/k = 3 and 7, w is the bar spacing and k the bar diameter). This ratio affects the energy distribution amongst the POD modes throughout the boundary layer, the higher modes, i.e. the relatively smallscale and less energetic motions, being the most perturbed. The first few nearwall POD modes were also affected by the spacing. Â© Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010.

Decaying grid turbulence is considered at low Reynolds number (R Â¿~ 50) for different initial conditions. Three different grid geometries are used. Heat is injected via a mandoline at a distance of 1.5 M from the grid. The amount of heating is such that temperature may be treated as a passive scalar. A small contraction (1.36:1) is added at a distance of 11M downstream of the grid. The powerlaw exponents for the scalar variance are compared with those for the turbulent kinetic energy. These exponents depend on the grid geometry. For the isotropic dissipation rate (Chi;) iso, the powerlaw exponent agrees with that inferred from the temperature variance transport equation. Restricting the range of validity of the decay law affects the magnitudes of the origin and decay exponent. Secondorder temperature structure functions collapse when the normalization is based on the local temperature variance and the Corrsin microscale but the asymptotic form of this collapse depends on the initial conditions.

Motions that are responsible for the production and maintenance of the Reynolds shear stress in a turbulent boundary layer may be affected by the Reynolds number and the surface roughness. Evidence for each of these effects is presented, based mainly on experiments carried out in our laboratory. The effects are felt in both inner and outer regions of the layer. The evidence points to the nonuniversality of the active motion and to the sensitivity of the large scale motion to boundary conditions.

Statistics of Â¿u/Â¿y have been measured in a turbulent boundary layer over either a smooth wall or a riblet surface using parallel hot wires. Over the riblets, the mean square value of Â¿u/Â¿y (normalised with smooth wall variables) is smaller than over the smooth wall; the difference increases as the distance to the wall decreases. Also this difference is larger when the riblets operate in a dragaugmenting mode. These changes would reflect changes in the nearwall turbulence structure. Furthermore, on the basis that Â¿u/Â¿y is a major contributor to the spanwise vorticity, the results indicate that, relative to the smooth wall, the mean square spanwise vorticity is reduced near a riblet surface.

Laser doppler anemometry (LDA) measurements and numerical calculations have been made for a laminar boundary layer on triangular riblets. Calculated mean velocity distributions along the riblet contour are in good agreement with the measured ones. The results show that no transversal motion exists above and within the riblet valleys (e.g., no secondary motion). It is found that despite the large wetted area increase, the frictional drag is not increased on riblets relative to a smooth wall. This result suggests that the viscous effects are at play in the drag reduction for a turbulent boundary layer, in the sense that they compensate for the increase in wetted area.
