Unformatted text preview: Tony Burden’s Lecture Notes on Turbulence, Spring 2007 Chapter 3. Thin Shear Layers and Free Shear Flows 3a Thinshearlayer Equations examples — free shear flows, such as jets, wakes and mixing layers, and wall bounded flows, such as boundary layers and wall jets. empirical observation; ∂U ∂x ∂U ∂y . Orderofmagnitude estimates Let U ∼ U , ∂U ∂x ∼ Δ U L and ∂U ∂y ∼ Δ U δ . Then, ∂U ∂x ∂U ∂y → δ L. See the next section for examples of the velocity scales U and Δ U . Statistically stationary and twodimensional flow field, The twocomponent, twodimensional velocity is, U ( x, y ) , V ( x, y ) , . The Reynolds stress is,  ρ h u 2 i  ρ h u v i ρ h u v i  ρ h v 2 i ρ h w 2 i , and depends only on x and y . All the components are assumed to have the same order of magnitude, h u i u j i ∼ u 2 T . the continuity condition and the transverse component of velocity ∂U ∂x + ∂V ∂y = 0 → V ∼ δ L Δ U Δ U....
