  • Wu, Yanhua; Christensen, Kenneth T. (2006-01)
    The present effort documents the population trends of prograde and retrograde spanwise vortex cores in wall turbulence outside the buffer layer. Large ensembles of instantaneous velocity fields are acquired by particle-image ...

  • Natrajan, Vinay K.; Christensen, Kenneth T. (2006-01)
    The present effort documents the relationship between dominant subgrid-scale energy transfer events and coherent motions within the log layer of wall turbulence. Instantaneous velocity fields in the streamwise–wall-normal ...

  • Tomkins, Christopher D.; Adrian, Ronald J. (Cambridge University Press, 2003)
    Spanwise structure and growth mechanisms in a turbulent boundary layer are investigated experimentally. PIV measurements are obtained in the streamwise– spanwise (x–z)-plane from the buffer layer to the top of the ...
