Scaling exponents near the onset of turbulence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Velocity measurements made in the wake of a circular cylinder near the onset of turbulence have been analyzed to determine various scaling exponents. One conclusion is the apparent divergence of a correlation length as one approaches a "critical" Reynolds number. Other aspects analyzed are the scaling of turbulent energy and energy dissipation rate, as well as the circulation around square boxes of various sizes.
