    A turbulence closure model is applied to the case of an oscillating boundary layer; model calculations compare favorably with data. Wave-induced oscillations can be temporally resolved in a one-dimensional model but not in three-dimensional ocean models, and, indeed, statistical wave models,...

    Experiments were carried out with the aim of investigating the possibility of obtaining a net drag reduction on a finite body by manipulating the outer layer structure of the turbulent boundary layer. The experiments were carried out in a 260 m long towing tank, where large eddy breakup devices...

    Recent results of Davies et al. [ Phys. Fluids A 1, 1331 (1989) ], which cast the problem of scattering of long surface waves by sinusoidal bed undulations into a Mathieu equation, are extended here to include the case of dispersive, intermediate depth waves. The present formulation is...

    A comparison of the turbulence structure of subsonic and supersonic boundary layers reveals that, despite broad similarities, significant differences exist. The length scales derived from space-time correlations indicate that the spanwise scales are almost identical but that the streamwise...

    A near-wall streaky structure has been identified in a turbulent boundary layer on a cylinder in axial flow. A platinum wire looped around a cylinder moving in a tank of quiescent water was used to generate hydrogen bubbles near the wall of the cylinder. The streaks that were visualized...

    Theoretical and direct numerical simulation models of transient algebraic growth in boundary layers have advanced significantly without an adequate, parallel experimental effort. Experiments that feature disturbances excited by high levels of freestream turbulence or distributed surface...

    The two-dimensional, incompressible, turbulent boundary layer over a flexible wall is analyzed. The wall consists of sinusoidal waves that are swept with respect to the flow direction. The mean flow is a boundary layer with wave-induced stresses. These stresses are evaluated from the solution of...

    The present research is based on the belief that the observation of the response of near wall turbulent organized motions to external perturbations is a powerful technique for investigating the physics of turbulence regeneration. The low speed streak behavior in the buffer layer of a flat...

    In an effort to better understand the physics and structure of coherent events in a turbulent boundary layer, an attempt is made to produce "artificial" bursts. These are generated in a turbulent boundary layer developed on a fiat plate towed in an 18 m water channel and thus with negligible...
