  • 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 ...

  • Natrajan, Vinay K.; Wu, Yanhua; Christensen, Kenneth T. (Cambridge University Press, 2007)
    The spatial signatures of retrograde spanwise vortices in wall turbulence are assessed from particle-image velocimetry measurements in the streamwise–wall-normal plane of a zero-pressure-gradient turbulent boundary layer ...
