Abstract

In analogy with Kolmogorov's refined similarity hypotheses for the velocity field, two hypotheses are stated for passive scalar fields mixed by high-Reynolds-number turbulence. A "refined' Yaglom equation is derived under the new assumption of local isotropy in pure ensembles, which is stronger than the usual assumption of local isotropy but weaker than the isotropy of the large scale. -from Authors
