Abstract:Overall, results indicate that the hairpin vortex and its organization into packets is a robust and significant feature of wall-bounded turbulence over a wide range of Reynolds numbers. The hairpin-vortex-packet model of turbulence provides a consistent explanation for the distribution of energy among the largest scales of the flow and underscores the importance of the very-large scales.
