Measurement of Spanwise Distribution of Turbulent Structures

  • James F. Keffer
Conference paper

Abstract

Techniques which can be used to determine the three-dimensional nature of the structure within turbulent flows are described. The methods include spanwise, space-time correlations based on conventional and intermittency signals and evaluation of co-spectra and coherence.
