The vortical structure of bounded turbulent shear flow

  • James M. Wallace
III. Instability and Turbulence
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 235)


Further evidence from the literature of the last several years for a “hairpin-vortex” model of transitional and fully developed bounded turbulent shear flows is cited and discussed. Added to the body of previous evidence [Wallace (1982)], it provides new information about the vortical organization of these flows and their kinematic and dynamic processes.
