A turbulent flow with a given spatial pattern of mean motion invariant with time is treated. No solid boundary is considered. By means of the Fourier analysis of the NavierStokes equation, it is possible to obtain an equfl,tion of energy balance in spectral terms. T his involves the following functions: Viscous dissipation, transfer, production, convect.ion, and diffmion. The first two functions are common to the isotropic and homogeneous turbulence without mean motion. Assuming that eddies… Expand
Characteristics of turbulence in a boundary layer with zero pressure gradient
The results of an experimental investigation of a turbulent boundary layer with zero pressure gradient are presented. Measurements with the hot-wire anemometer were made of turbulent energy andExpand
Spectral analogy between temperature and velocity fluctuations in several turbulent flows
Abstract The analogy between the spectral distributions of the temperature variance and the turbulent kinetic energy, established by Fulachier and Dumas in the case of a turbulent boundary layer withExpand
Theoretical study of turbulent channel flow - Bulk properties, pressure fluctuations, and propagation of electromagnetic waves
In this paper, we apply two theoretical turbulence models, DIA and the recent GISS model, to study properties of a turbulent channel flow. Both models provide a turbulent kinetic energy spectralExpand
Structure of anisotropic pulsations of the velocity and temperature in a developed turbulent boundary layer
The turbulence characteristics of very small (compared with the exterior scale of the flow) vortices in a developed turbulent boundary layer can be described with good accuracy by theExpand
The Structure of Turbulence in Fully Developed Pipe Flow
Measurements, principally with a hot-wire anemometer, were made in fully developed turbulent flow in a 10-inch pipe at speeds of approximately 10 and 100 feet per second. Emphasis was placed onExpand
Solution for the Inertial Energy Spectrum of Isotropic Turbulence
A dynamic equation for quasi‐stationary, inertially dominated, isotropic turbulence is formulated on the basis of a modified Obukhoff transfer term. By means of an elementary transformation, aExpand
Spectra of thermally stratified turbulent flow with no shear
In this paper a new analytical approximation, concerning the integral ?? k ? WT ( p ) dp in the spectral equations (3), (4) is suggested. It is based on the physical idea about natural realization ofExpand
Turbulence Spectra in a Stably Stratified Boundary Layer
Some experimental spectra of the v', w', and t' fluctuations in a stably stratified boundary layer are discussed that were obtained in the constant stress region of a laboratory boundary layer. It isExpand
Data-driven decomposition of the streamwise turbulence kinetic energy in boundary layers. Part 1. Energy spectra
In wall-bounded turbulence, a multitude of coexisting turbulence structures form the streamwise velocity energy spectrum from the viscosity- to the inertia-dominated range of scales. DefiniteExpand
A model of turbulence spectra in the atmospheric surface layer
The spectral equations of turbulent kinetic energy and temperature variance have been solved by using Onsager's energy cascade model and by extending Onsager's model to closure of terms that embodyExpand
