INTEREST in the structure of turbulent boundary layers and in particular mechanisms responsible for the transfer of turbulent energy and generation of Reynolds stress has recently been stimulated by a series of laboratory flow visualisation experiments1–5. These have indicated that Reynolds stress production is intermittent and associated with a sequence of motions known collectively as “bursting”3. Experimental evidence presented here suggests that similar motions can be readily identified in… CONTINUE READING
