Similar solutions for turbulent shear flows described by mean velocity, turbulent energy, and turbulent length scale
Abstract
Difficulties connected with the study of turbulent flows can possibly be overcome with the aid of a statistical description involving a use of the average values of certain, mostly measurable, flow quantities. The quantities considered are the mean velocity and correlation functions. The coefficients in the obtained relations have to be adjusted on the basis of experimental data. It is necessary to explore the dependence of the solution on the coefficients. In this connection an investigation is conducted, taking into account six different cases of similar solutions for turbulent flows.
