  • Adrian, Ronald J.; Balachandar, S.; Liu, Zi-Chao (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2001-09)
    Recent studies of the structure of wall turbulence have lead to the development of a conceptual model that validates and integrates many elements of previous models into a relatively simple picture based on self-assembling ...

  • Natrajan, Vinay K.; Yamaguchi, Eiichiro; Christensen, Kenneth T. (Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 2006-04)
    Microscopic particle-image velocimetry (micro-PIV) measurements are made in the streamwise–wall-normal plane of a 536-micron capillary at Re = 4500 to study the statistical and structural features of wall turbulence at the ...
