Asymmetrical order in wall-bounded turbulent flows

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scaling of turbulent wall-bounded flows is revealed in the gradient structures, for each of the Reynolds stress components. Within the “dissipation” structure, an asymmetrical order exists, whichwe can deploy to unify the scaling and transport dynamics within and across these flows. There are subtle differences in the outer boundary conditions between channel and flat-plate boundarylayer flows, which modify the turbulence structure far from the wall. The self-similarity exhibited in the gradient space and corresponding transport dynamics establish capabilities and encompassing knowledge of wall-bounded turbulent flows.
