Title:Conditional velocity and reynolds stresses in plane turbulent shear layer

Plane Turbulent Shear Layer
Abstract:The properties of conditional averages in which the conditional event has the form {v < u(x,t) < v + dv} have been studied for isotropic turbulence and for anisotropic turbulence in a plane high Reynolds number shear layer with 2:1 velocity ratio. In isotropic turbulence it is shown that a linear estimate of the form < ui (x + r,t) | u(x,t) > = Aij(r)uj(x,t) is the dominant term in a power series expansion of the conditional average. It is a good approximation for probable values of the velocity fluctuation, and it predicts a vortex ring structure. In the shear layer, conditional averages of the velocity component u(x + r,t) and v(x + r,t) and the Reynolds stresses uv(x + r,t), u2(x + r,t), v2(x + r,t) have been measured given the values of u(x,t) and v(x,t) using two X-wire probes. Comparison of the conditional velocity with its linear estimate shows good agreement, provided the correlation function used in linear estimate is accurate.
