Introduction to Papers on Free Turbulent Flow

Conference paper


Several convenient classifications of the papers in this section can be made. We find simple flows (which of course are not simple at all!); more complex flows, made up of simple flows in combination with each other; simple flows with curvature effects; and simple flows with swirl. All of the flows studied experimentally involve wakes: wakes in isolation, wakes in combination with boundary layers or with other wakes, wakes with curvature, and wakes with swirl. The one numerical study considers a plane mixing layer.
