Mean Velocity of Fully Developed Turbulent Pipe Flows

  title={Mean Velocity of Fully Developed Turbulent Pipe Flows},
  author={Zvi Rusak and James Meyerholz},
The mean flow profile of a turbulent flow in a smooth channel or a pipe is a classical topic in fluid mechanics [1–4]. For fully developed turbulent pipe flows, von Karman and Prandtl’s pioneering analyses indicate two dominant regions: the near-wall laminar sublayer and the turbulent region away from the wall. The two regions are connected by a small intermediate buffer zone. In both regions, u , the mean velocity scaled with the friction speed u , is a function of y , the distance from the… CONTINUE READING
