Abstract Following the findings by Wangsawijaya et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 894, 2020, A7), we re-examine the turbulent boundary layers developing over surfaces with spanwise heterogeneous roughness of various roughness half-wavelengths $0.32 \leq S/\bar {\delta } \leq 3.63$, where $S$ is the width of the roughness strips and $\bar {\delta }$ is the spanwise-averaged boundary-layer thickness. The heterogeneous cases induce counter-rotating secondary flows, and these are compared with the large…
