Laminarescent, relaminarizing and retransitional flows

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This report examines in detail all accelerated turbulent boundary layers and subcritical pipe or channel flows undergoing relaminarization and possible retransition, with a view to evolving a broad picture in regard to the status of experiments in these flows, the trustworthiness or shortcomings of the data, the sources of difficulties peculiar to these flows, etc. With the hindsight so acquired, a discussion is provided of the directions in which future work would most usefully supplement the existing data.
