    The fluctuating wall-shear stress was measured with various types of hot-wire and hot-film sensors in turbulent boundary-layer and channel flows. The rms level of the streamwise wall-shear stress fluctuations was found to be 40% of the mean value, which was substantiated by measurements of the...
