The drag reduction phenomenon of a circular cylinder is investigated, using an Xwire probe, by placing a smaller diameter control cylinder of either circular or square crosssectional upstream of the main circular cylinder. The separation between the two cylinders was chosen so as to minimise the overall drag of the main cylinder. Although both configurations resulted in drag reduction, the square control cylinder yielded a bigger reduction and had a greater impact on the mean velocity and turbulent velocity fluctuations in the wake. Both control cylinders led to a reduction in the wake halfwidth. Spectra in the near wake did not indicate any suppression in vortex shedding.

Selfpreservation (SP) solutions on the axis of a turbulent round jet are derived for the transport equation of the secondorder structure function of the turbulent kinetic energy , which may be interpreted as a scalebyscale (s.b.s.) energy budget. The analysis shows that the mean turbulent energy dissipation rate, , evolves like ( is the streamwise direction). It is important to stress that this derivation does not use the constancy of the nondimensional dissipation rate parameter ( and are the integral length scale and root mean square of the longitudinal velocity fluctuation respectively). We show, in fact, that the constancy of is simply a consequence of complete SP (i.e. SP at all scales of motion). The significance of the analysis relates to the fact that the SP requirements for the mean velocity and mean turbulent kinetic energy (i.e. and respectively) are derived without invoking the transport equations for and . Experimental hotwire data along the axis of a turbulent round jet show that, after a transient downstream distance which increases with Reynolds number, the turbulence statistics comply with complete SP. For example, the measured agrees well with the SP prediction, i.e. , while the Taylor microscale Reynolds number remains constant. The analytical expression for the prefactor for (where is a virtual origin), first developed by Thiesset et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 748, 2014, R2) and rederived here solely from the SP analysis of the s.b.s. energy budget, is validated and provides a relatively simple and accurate method for estimating along the axis of a turbulent round jet.

[more] The transport equation for the mean scalar dissipation rate ¿¿ is derived by applyingthe limit at small separations to the generalized form of Yaglom's equation in twotypes of flows, those dominated mainly by a decay of energy in the streamwisedirection and those which are forced, through a continuous injection of energy atlarge scales. In grid turbulence, the imbalance between the production of ¿¿ dueto stretching of the temperature field and the destruction of ¿¿ by the thermaldiffusivity is governed by the streamwise advection of ¿¿ by the mean velocity.This imbalance is intrinsically different from that in stationary forced periodic boxturbulence (or SFPBT), which is virtually negligible. In essence, the different typesof imbalance represent different constraints imposed by the largescale motion on therelation between the socalled mixed velocitytemperature derivative skewness STand the scalar enstrophy destruction coefficient G¿ in different flows, thus resultingin nonuniversal approaches of ST towards a constant value as Re¿ increases. Thedata for ST collected in grid turbulence and in SFPBT indicate that the magnitudeof ST is bounded, this limit being close to 0.5.

In this paper, the velocitybased POD and the vorticitybased POD have been systematically compared in three characteristic regions of the flow downstream of a twodimensional circular cylinder, namely the near, intermediate and far wakes. The twopoint space correlation function is used to determine which of the two methods is better suited for extracting the largescale flow structures based on the repartition of energy among the different POD modes. It is found that the POD, based on the lateral velocity fluctuation v, leads to the most optimum extraction in all three flow regions, while the vorticitybased POD is only effective in the near and intermediate wakes. Based on twopoint space correlation functions, a scenario is proposed for the application of POD to the present twodimensional wake.

[more] 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 (R¿) 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 ¿, 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).

The transport equation for the isotropic turbulent energy dissipation rate along the centreline in the farwake of a circular cylinder is derived by applying the limit at small separations to the twopoint energy budget equation. It is found that the imbalance between the production and the destruction of eiso, respectively due to vortex stretching and viscosity, is governed by both the streamwise advection and the lateral turbulent diffusion (the former contributes more to the budget than the latter). This imbalance differs intrinsically from that in other flows, e.g. grid turbulence and the flow along the centreline of a fully developed channel, where either the streamwise advection or the lateral turbulent diffusion of eiso governs the imbalance. More importantly, the different types of imbalance represent different constraints on the relation between the skewness of the longitudinal velocity derivative and the destruction coefficient of enstrophy G. This results in a nonuniversal approach of towards a constant value as the Taylor microscale Reynolds number R¿ increases. For the present flow, the magnitude of S decreases initially before increasing (R¿ > 40) towards this constant value. The constancy of S at large R¿ violates the modified similarity hypothesis introduced by Kolmogorov (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 13, 1962, pp. 8285) but is consistent with the original similarity hypotheses (Kolmogorov, Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR, vol. 30, 1941b, pp. 299303 (see also 1991 Proc. R. Soc. Lond. A, vol. 434, pp. 913)) , and, more importantly, with the almost completely selfpreserving nature of the plane farwake.

Direct numerical simulations (DNS) are carried out to study the passive heat transport in a turbulent channel flow with either square bars or circular rods on one wall. Several values of the pitch to height ratio and two Reynolds numbers are considered. The roughness increases the heat transfer by inducing ejections at the leading edge of the roughness elements. The amounts of heat transfer and mixing depend on the separation between the roughness elements, an increase in heat transfer accompanying an increase in drag. The ratio of nondimensional heat flux to the nondimensional wall shear stress is higher for circular rods than square bars irrespectively of the pitch to height ratio. The turbulent heat flux varies within the cavities and is larger near the roughness elements. Both momentum and thermal eddy diffusivities increase relative to the smooth wall. For square cavities the turbulent Prandtl number is smaller than for a smooth channel near the wall. As increases, the turbulent Prandtl number increases up to a maximum of 2.5 at the crests plane of the square bars . With increasing distance from the wall, the differences with respect to the smooth wall vanish and at three roughness heights above the crests plane, the turbulent Prandtl number is essentially the same for smooth and rough walls.

The transport equation for the mean turbulent energy dissipation rate along the centreline of a fully developed channel flow is derived by applying the limit at small separations to the twopoint budget equation. Since the ratio of the isotropic energy dissipation rate to the mean turbulent energy dissipation rate is sufficiently close to 1 on the centreline, our main focus is on the isotropic form of the transport equation. It is found that the imbalance between the production of due to vortex stretching and the destruction of caused by the action of viscosity is governed by the diffusion of by the wallnormal velocity fluctuation. This imbalance is intrinsically different from the advectiondriven imbalance in decayingtype flows, such as grid turbulence, jets and wakes. In effect, the different types of imbalance represent different constraints on the relation between the skewness of the longitudinal velocity derivative and the destruction coefficient of enstrophy in different flows, thus resulting in nonuniversal approaches of towards a constant value as the Taylor microscale Reynolds number, , increases. For example, the approach is slower for the measured values of along either the channel or pipe centreline than along the axis in the selfpreserving region of a round jet. The data for collected in different flows strongly suggest that, in each flow, the magnitude of is bounded, the value being slightly larger than 0.5.

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 ¿, even when the Reynolds number is relatively small. On the other hand, the Taylor microscale ¿ 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 ~ (tt<inf>0</inf>)<sup>n</sup>+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 ¿ becomes a relevant scaling length together with ¿. 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).

The variation of S, the velocity derivative skewness, with the Taylor microscale Reynolds number Re¿ is examined for different turbulent flows by considering the locally isotropic form of the transport equation for the mean energy dissipation rate e¯iso. In each flow, the equation can be expressed in the form S C 2G=Re¿ D C=Re¿, where G is a nondimensional rate of destruction of e¯iso and C is a flowdependent constant. Since 2G=Re¿ is found to be very nearly constant for Re¿ = 70, S should approach a universal constant when Re¿ is sufficiently large, but the way this constant is approached is flow dependent. For example, the approach is slow in grid turbulence and rapid along the axis of a round jet. For all the flows considered, the approach is reasonably well supported by experimental and numerical data. The constancy of S at large Re¿ has obvious ramifications for smallscale turbulence research since it violates the modified similarity hypothesis introduced by Kolmogorov (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 13, 1962, pp. 8285) but is consistent with the original similarity hypothesis (Kolmogorov, Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR, vol. 30, 1941, pp. 299303).

[more] 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 Péclet 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. © 2014 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

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. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

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 ¿ 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. © 2013 The Authors.

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.

A direct numerical simulation (DNS) based on the lattice Boltzmann method is carried out for decaying grid turbulence at low Reynolds numbers with the view to investigating possible departures from Kolmogorov scaling. 1D and 3D spectra show that the Kolmogorov scaling is no longer valid when the Reynolds number falls below a certain value. The results are in agreement with the low Reynolds number DNS in a 3D periodic box by Mansour and Wray [1]. We are now investigating possible departures from local isotropy when the Kolmogorov scaling breaks down.

All rights reserved. Realisability conditions based on the CauchySchwarz inequality are developed for the moments of the longitudinal velocity structure function, (du(r))n (du(r) = u(x,t)  u(x,+r,t)), for homogeneous isotropic turbulence in the inertial range, when they are assumed to follow a powerlaw form (~ r¿n). While these conditions cannot be used to assess the validity of any phenomenology behind the development of scaling laws in the form (du)n ~ r¿n, they provide a simple and objective way to assess the realisability of the exponent ¿n. In particular, they can also be used to assess the realisability of ¿n obtained empirically from either experimental or numerical data. Application of these realisability conditions to existing data shows that the estimated exponents ¿n as well as multifractal model expressions of ¿n are not realisable. Interestingly, the ßmodel and the Kolmogorov prediction (i.e. ¿n = n/3) are both realisable, but only the latter is Reynolds number independent. This is expected since it is valid when the Reynolds number is infinitely large.

All rights reserved. The dimensionless mean energy dissipation rate parameter Ce is measured in a fully rough wall turbulent boundary layer at several Reynolds numbers using hotwire anemometry. The study aims to determine the dependence of Ce = eL/u'3 on the distance from the wall and the Reynolds number. The results shows that Ce decreases as the distance from the wall increases and reaches a minimum value, which appears to be independent of the Reynolds number. Further, this value, which is about 0.40.5, is the same as in homogeneous isotropic turbulence at high Reynolds numbers. This lends support to the possibility that a universal value for Ce at large Reynolds numbers cannot be ruled out.

All rights reserved. This paper focuses on the statistics of normalized fourthorder moment of the longitudinal velocity derivative, ¿u/¿x, i.e. the flatness factor S4 = (¿u/¿x)4/(¿u/¿x)22 on the axis of a plane jet over a range of Taylor microscale Reynolds number varying between R¿ ' 500 and 1100. The aim is to determine the dependence of S4 on R¿. Different tests on the jet axis show that local isotropy is closely satisfied, allowing the use of eiso, the locally isotropic form of the mean turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate e. The measurements show that S4 remains approximately constant when R¿ = 500. This is inconsistent S4 ~ Ra¿, where a is a small positive number, as predicted by various internal intermittency models. The constancy of S4 is in full agreement with the relatively recent results (6) showing that S3, the skewness of ¿u/¿x, also tends to a constant when R¿ increases. The present results conform with the original similarity hypotheses of Kolmogorov (1).

[more] On the basis of a twopoint similarity analysis, the powerlaw variations for the different lengthscales (e.g. the Taylor microscale, and the Kolmogorov scale) and the velocity scales (e.g. the rms, the Kolmogorov velocity) in the farwake of a circular cylinder are derived. In particular, an exact relation for estimating the mean turbulent energy dissipation rate f on the wake axis is obtained. All these relations are supported reasonably well by hotwire data in the farwake at a Reynolds number based on the free stream velocity and the cylinder diameter of 2000.

The pre... [more] The transport equation of the mean turbulent energy dissipation (¿) along the axis of a turbulent round jet is examined in the context of the scalebyscale energy budget. The previously well established (xx0)4, where x0 is the virtual origin, dependence of ¿ along the jet axis is shown to be consistent with the limits at both small and largescale of this budget. It is found that the isotropic form of the transport equation for ¿ requires the sum Su + 2 Gu/R¿ to be constant along the jet axis for given initial conditions, where Su is the skewness, Gu is the destruction coefficient and R¿ is the Taylor micro scale Reynolds number. These results are consistent the theoretical analysis of Thiesset etal. (2014) who showed that Su + 2Gu/R¿ ~ R1¿. The way that the sum Su + 2 Gu/R¿ approaches zero at high R¿, as required for stationary isotropic turbulence, is discussed.

[more] The paper is an experimental and analytical investigation of the analogy between the variance of the passive scalar field, ¿2 and the dynamical field, in particular the total kinetic energy q2 (the sum of variances of the three velocity components). The analogy between the transport equation of ¿2 and q2 is most likely to be valid under the constraint of statistical homogeneity (negligible effect of pressure) and for a Schmidt (or Prandlt) number equal to 1 (molecular or viscous diffusion predominates in the same range of scales). Experimental data were inferred from simultaneous hot and coldwire measurements in a slightly heated axisymmetric shear layer, for which similar initial and boundary conditions were imposed for both ¿ and q (i.e., the mean temperature and velocity gradient are both present). We show clear experimental evidence that: i) at large scales, for which the production is dominant (either shear or mean temperature gradient), the analogy between the kinetic energy and the temperature variance is satisfactory. ii) the smallest scales, especially for locations where the magnitude of the mean temperature and velocity gradient decreases, become shearindependent, and the analogy is not tenable. We provide an analytical explanation for this behaviour, based on a simple model which is reasonably wellvalidated against experimental data. It is shown that: i) local isotropy is not necessary for the similarity ¿  q to be valid; ii) the main factor which allows the similarity to hold is the production term in the onepoint kinetic energy budget equation. When only production is present, a simple closure of this term based on a Prandtltype model leads to simple, analytical solutions and the similarity can be explained, iii) when other effects (e.g., decay) are present, departures from similarity can occur.

[more] The decay of turbulence in a shearless mixing layer generated from the junction of side by side grids with different mesh sizes but identical solidity is being investigated using hot wire anemometry. It is observed that turbulence decays according to a powerlaw, albeit, with a different powerlaw exponent (n) for each grid. The measurements suggest the existence of turbulent energy transfer from the larger mesh region to the smaller mesh region at distances as large as 75 ML from the grid, where ML is the mesh size of the larger mesh grid. It is further observed that the Reynolds number R¿ remains constant along the centreline of the flow (i.e. the junction of the two grids), confirming that selfpreservation is satisfied in this region of the flow. This is supported by the one dimensional velocity spectra Eu(k1). On the centreline, the measured energy spectra at positions x/ML = 45 collapse onto a single curve at all wavenumbers when scaled by either the Kolmogorov velocity and length scales or the rms velocity (u!) and Taylor microscale (X). Away from the centreline the spectra do not present such collapse.

The analysis showed that it is strictly not possible to obtain SP in a ZPG turbulent boundary layer, unless the viscous term is eliminated from the NSE. This can be achieved in a smooth wall boundary layer only when the Reynolds number (Re) approaches infinity. In the case of rough walls, it is noted that the viscous effects can be compensated by surface roughness and therefore, SP is achievable, irrespective of Re. In this case, SP analysis showed that velocity scale (u*) must be constant and the length scale (l) should vary linearly with streamwise distance (x). These SP conditions are tested using experimental data taken over a similar streamwise fetch on a smooth wall and several types of rough walls. It is observed that complete SP in a ZPG turbulent boundary layer is possible when the roughness height (¿) increases linearly with x, where both the SP constraints (u* =UT = constant and l = d ¿ x) are met. In the present rough wall study, UT is observed to remain practically constant in x and d ~ x and appears to be the next best candidate for achieving SP.

This present work is to investigate on the decay exponent (n) of decay power law (q' 2~(t  To)n , q'2 is the total turbulent kinetic energy, t is the decay time, t0 is the virtual origin) at low Reynolds numbers based on Taylor microscale R¿(= u '¿/ v) = 64 . Hot wire measurements are carried out in a grid turbulence subjected to a 1.36:1 contraction. The grid consists in large square holes (mesh size 43.75 mm and solidity 43%); small square holes (mesh size 14.15mm and solidity 43%) and woven mesh grid (mesh size 5mm and solidity 36%). The decay exponent (n) is determined using three different methods: (i) decay of q'2, (ii) transport equation for s , the mean dissipation of the turbulent kinetic energy and (iii) ¿ method (Taylor microscale ¿ = v5( q2)/ (ed)} , angular bracket denotes the ensemble). Preliminary results indicate that the magnitude n increases while R¿ (= u'¿/v)decreases, in accordance with the turbulence theory.

The surface consists of transverse cylindrical rods (k, the rod diameter) that are periodically arranged in the streamwise direction with a spacing of ¿/k = 8 (¿ is the distance between two adjacent roughness elements), that results in maximum form drag. Particular attention is paid to the measurement of the friction velocity (Ut) that plays a major role in the assessment of the roughness effects on the flow. Hotwire anemometry is used to measure the mean and fluctuating velocity components and pressure tap measurements are carried out to obtain the drag. Two methods are used to determine Ut. One is based on the momentum integral equation. The second relies on measuring the pressure distribution around one roughness element. Results show that both methods give consistent values for Ut to within 3%. Further, the drag coefficient (CD) is observed to be independent of the Reynolds number.

[more] An error analysis is reported of a method to discriminate between the tracer particles used to mark the carrierphase and the suspended particles in a twophase flow for particle image velocimetry. The discrimination was obtained through application of a medianfilter to twophase image pairs, generated artificially by a Monte Carlo simulation. A LambOseen vortex was selected as the simulated flow for both the gas and solidphases, as it provides a range of velocities within the simulated field. The rotational velocities of both phases were selected to be different, allowing a range of slip velocities to be analysed. Simulations were executed with a range of particle and tracer volumetric loadings, particle sizes and filter widths. This analysis provides much more detail than was previously available on the conditions for which a median filter will accurately discriminate between tracers and larger particles in a real flow.

In the present paper, we will compare two PODs in a cylinder wake. One is carried out on Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) data (hereafter denoted PODPIV) and the other is performed on single hotwire measurements (hereafter denoted PODHW). It is revealed that both PODs capture well the large scale corresponding to the Karman vortex shedding. The results suggest that PODHW provides a less unambiguous and more objective identification of smaller scales than PODPIV. It is also found that the PODHW energy distribution, when adequately normalized, collapses well with the 1D velocity spectrum.

[more] Measurements of velocity and the temperature fluctuations have been performed to determine the budget of q2¯ (mean turbulence kinetic energy) and ¿2¯ (temperature variance) in the far wake of a cylinder. The two budgets show similar physical phenomena (advection and diffusion) as the source of large scale inhomogeneity on the flow centreline. It was noted that the estimates of the dissipation rates e¯ and ¿¯ of q2¯ and ¿2¯, respectively, obtained using a spectral chart method results in a better closure in both the q2¯ and ¿2¯ budgets than their isotropic counterparts.

[more] A long time running direct numerical simulation (DNS) based on the lattice Boltzmann method is carried out in grid turbulence with the view to compare spatially averaged statistical properties in planes perpendicular to the mean flow with their temporal counterparts. The results show that the two averages become equal a short distance downstream of the grid. This equality indicates that the flow has become homogeneous in a plane perpendicular to the mean flow. This is an important result, since it confirms that hotwire measurements are appropriate for testing theoretical results based on spatially averaged statistics. It is equally important in the context of DNSs of grid turbulence, since it justifies the (lateral) spatial averaging using several realizations, to determine various statistical properties. Finally, the very good agreement between temporal and spatial averages validates the comparison between temporal (experiments) and spatial (DNS) statistical properties. The results are also interesting because, since the flow is stationary in time and spatially homogeneous in the lateral directions, the equality between the two types of averaging can be seen to provide support for the ergodic hypothesis in grid turbulence in planes perpendicular to the mean flow.

In reality, t... [more] Mean dissipation rates <e> and <¿> of the turbulent kinetic energy and of a passive scalar are important in the theory and modelling of turbulent mixing. In reality, turbulence is usually not isotropic. Twelve velocity derivatives and three scalar derivatives are required to compute these quantities, and so the estimate of the dissipation rates presents a real challenge. We overcome this by developing a spectral method that is tenable for a wide range of Taylor microscale Reynolds numbers provided the small scales are not adversely affected by flow inhomogeneities. The method applies to turbulent mixing for a Prandtl number close to unity and excludes nearwall turbulence. It involves juxtaposing a series of calibrated reference spectra at increments of ¿<e> and ¿<¿> to the measured spectra to identify the best match. The technique is demonstrated by applying it to previously published grid turbulence data.

All rights reserved. Velocity and temperature measurements are carried out in a mixing layer of a heated turbulent round jet with the aim of investigating how the large scale vortical structures that characterize the mixing layer affect both the energy and scalar variance transport terms. The assessment is performed through the measurements of the second and thirdorder velocity and temperature structure functions. Compared with the jet centreline, the structure functions for both velocity and temperature are altered in the mixing layer. The modification is consistent with the presence of large scale coherent structures in the mixing layer. For example, the approach to the limiting value of 2 for the secondorder structure functions, which is monotonic on the jet centreline, undergoes an oscillation in the mixing layer. An oscillation is also observed for the thirdorder structure functions in the mixing layer. The scalebyscale energy budgets suggest that the nonhomogeneity in the mixing layer contributes more to the budget than on the jet centreline.

All rights reserved. This paper focuses on the statistics of normalized fourthorder moment of the longitudinal velocity derivative, ¿u/¿x, i.e. the flatness factor S4 = (¿u/¿x)4/(¿u/¿x)22 on the axis of a plane jet over a range of Taylor microscale Reynolds number varying between R¿ ' 500 and 1100. The aim is to determine the dependence of S4 on R¿. Different tests on the jet axis show that local isotropy is closely satisfied, allowing the use of eiso, the locally isotropic form of the mean turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate e. The measurements show that S4 remains approximately constant when R¿ = 500. This is inconsistent S4 ~ Ra¿, where a is a small positive number, as predicted by various internal intermittency models. The constancy of S4 is in full agreement with the relatively recent results (6) showing that S3, the skewness of ¿u/¿x, also tends to a constant when R¿ increases. The present results conform with the original similarity hypotheses of Kolmogorov (1).

The effects of the gap ratio s/... [more] The lowReynolds number flow around two square cylinders placed sidebyside in a channel is investigated using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The effects of the gap ratio s/d (s is the separation between the cylinders and d is the characteristic dimension) on the flow are studied. These simulations reveal the existence of regimes with either synchronized or nonsynchronized vortexshedding, with transition occurring at s/d ¿ 2. Detailed results are presented at Re = 73 for s/d = 2.5 and 0.7 corresponding to the synchronized and flipflop regimes, respectively. Vortex shedding from the cylinder occurs either inphase or inantiphase in the synchronized regime. However, linear stochastic estimate (LSE) calculations show that inphase locking is the predominant mode. LSE is also employed to educe the underlying modes in the flipflop regime, where evidence for both inphase and antiphase locked vortices is found, indicating that this regime is in a quasistable state between these two modes. The merging of the wakes, which is gradual for the synchronized regime, occurs rapidly in the flipflop regime. The mean pressure on the upstream surface is symmetric and asymmetric for the synchronized and flipflop regimes, respectively. Differences in results between the two regimes are interpreted in terms of the interaction of the jet formed between the cylinders with the adjoining wakes, the strength of this interaction depending on the spacing. © 2005 by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc.
