In this paper, the effects of freestream Mach number on the statistics and large-scale structures in compressible turbulent boundary layers are investigated using direct numerical simulations(DNS). DNS of turbulent boundary layers with nominal freestream Mach number ranging from 3 to 8 are performed. The validity of Morkovin’s scaling, strong Reynolds analogy, and Walz’s equation are assessed. We find that many of the scaling relations used to express compressible boundary layer statistics in… CONTINUE READING
