0 A ug 1 99 9 Self-similar Intermediate Structures in Turbulent Boundary Layers at Large Reynolds Numbers

  title={0 A ug 1 99 9 Self-similar Intermediate Structures in Turbulent Boundary Layers at Large Reynolds Numbers},
  author={G. I. Barenblatt and Alexandre J. Chorin and V. M. Prostokishin},
Processing the data from a large variety of zero-pressure-gradient boundary layer flows shows that the Reynolds-number-dependent scaling law, which the present authors obtained earlier for pipes, gives an accurate description of the velocity distribution in a selfsimilar intermediate region of distances from the wall adjacent to the viscous sublayer. The appropriate length scale that enters the definition of the boundary layer Reynolds number is found for all the flows under investigation… CONTINUE READING
