The Structure of Turbulent Shear Flow by A.A.R. Townsend,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. A novel notion of turbulent structure—the local cascade structure—is introduced to study the convection phenomenon in a turbulent channel flow.

A space–time cross-correlation method is used. The Structure of Turbulent Shear Flow, by A. TOWNSEND. bridge University Press, pp. 40s. or $ Cam- Any steady flow of a fluid is unstable when the Reynolds number (product of a typical flow velocity with a typical length scale, divided by the kinematic viscosity) is great enough, although the required magnitude varies extremely.

A high-velocity eddy or vortex (called a sweep) moves toward the boundary and interacts with low velocity fluid near the boundary to cause acceleration, increase in shear, and development of small-scale turbulence; this accelerated fluid is then lifted from the boundary and ejected as a turbulent burst into a region of flow farther from the.

Thus, while turbulence model development in general has proceeded very slowly in the past twenty years, progress for free shear ﬂows has been even more so.

The examples presented include wakes, jets, shear layers, thermal plumes, atmospheric boundary layers, pipe and channel flow, and boundary layers in pressure gradients. The spatial structure of turbulent flow has been the subject of analysis in the book up to this point, at which a compact but thorough introduction to statistical methods is given.

Turbulent shear flows have traditionally been classified into two main categories: free shear layers and wall-bounded flows. For free shear flows, jets, mixing layers, and wakes can be viewed as the building blocks of more complex flow configurations of engineering interest.

It is a quasi-two-dimensional structure that develops when two fluid streams of substantially different velocity magnitude, but the same direction, are suddenly brought together, forming an interface in the streamwise direction. The production of turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) and flow structures in compressible homogeneous turbulent shear flow (HTSF) are investigated by using direct numerical simulation.

A theoretical analysis suggests that the vertical turbulent transport process should be responsible for the production of TKE in HTSF. It is manifested based on a conditional average method that the pure TKE Cited by: 2. The Influence of Small Particles on the Structure of a Turbulent Shear Flow David I.
