Wavelet analysis of the turbulent jet

R. Everson, L. Sirovich, K. R. Sreenivasan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The wavelet transform is applied to two-dimensional dye concentration data in turbulent jets at moderate Reynolds numbers. This reveals the nature and limitations of scale similarity of the inner structure of the scalar, and the stringiness associated with small scales. For comparison, two-dimensional Brownian motion is also treated.
