We discuss a simple analytical model of the turbulent boundary layer (TBL) over flat plane. The model offers an analytical description of the profiles of mean velocity and turbulent activity in the entire boundary region, from the viscous sub-layer, through the buffer layer further into the log-law turbulent region. In contrast to various existing interpolation formulas the model allows one to generalize the description of simple TBL of a Newtonian fluid for more complicated flows of turbulent…

Drag reduction by a linear viscosity profile.

TLDR
It is shown, using direct numerical simulations, that a linear viscosity profile indeed reduces the drag in agreement with the theory and in close correspondence with direct simulations of the FENE-P model at the same flow conditions.

DIRECT NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF TURBULENT CHANNEL FLOWS UP TO RE=590

Numerical simulations of fully developed turbulent channel flow at three Reynolds numbers up to Reτ=590 are reported. It is noted that the higher Reynolds number simulations exhibit fewer low

Drag reduction by polymers in wall bounded turbulence.

TLDR
The phenomenology of the "maximum drag reduction asymptote" is developed which is the maximum drag reduction attained by polymers in turbulent wall-bounded flows.

Scaling of the mean velocity profile for turbulent pipe flow

Saturation of turbulent drag reduction in dilute polymer solutions

Drag reduction by polymers in turbulent wall-bounded flows exhibits universal and non-universal aspects. The universal maximal mean-velocity profile was explained in a recent theory. The saturation
