Abstract

Extensive LES studies have been made of the low-Reynolds number turbulent boundary layer following a trip, and the near wake behind a thin flat plate. The numerical results are compared with those from parallel experiments of identical flow conditions conducted in conjunction with the simulations. Apart from the integral parameters and profiles of mean quantities and fluctuations, the balance analyses of Reynolds stress, kinetic energy and dissipation have also been derived. These linked studies allow us to understand in greater depth the complex dynamics that operates in both wall-bounded and spatially developing turbulent flows.
