Skewness of temperature derivatives in turbulent shear flows

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The nonzero value of the measured skewness of the streamwise temperature derivative is not necessarily inconsistent with the concept of local isotropy of small scale turbulence, and may be estimated adequately from a ramp-like model for the large scale structure of temperature.
