Measured Reynolds stress tensors in a threedimensional turbulent boundary layer
Abstract
An extensive experimental investigation is reported in which all six unknown elements of the Reynolds stress tensor as well as the mean velocity field were measured through a pressure driven, three dimensional turbulent boundary layer with moderate skewing relative to the free stream direction. The turbulent stresses were measured by the rotating probe technique. Measured turbulent shear stresses and the mean velocity field data are compared with values obtained from a numerical solution for the boundary layer flow. Moderate to good agreement exists between the measured values and those computed for an isotropic mixing length model.
