  • Wu, Yanhua; Christensen, Kenneth T. (Cambridge University Press, 2006)
    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.; 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 ...
