Abstract

Circulation around closed contours (square boxes) of various sizes is computed from two-dimensional spatial velocity data, acquired by the particle image velocimetry technique in the turbulent wake behind a circular cylinder. Scaling is observed for an intermediate range of box sizes even at the low and moderate Reynolds numbers of measurement. The scaling exponents are determined at various Reynolds numbers and presented with a plausible interpretation.
