Balance of Reynolds stresses in a jet developing along a convex wall with a radius of constant curvature
Abstract
The paper studies the local equation governing Reynolds stresses in a twodimensional jet along a circular wall with a radius of constant curvature. The following terms are present in the equation: (1) a convection term; (2) a production term relating the transverse gradient of the longitudinal component of mean velocity to the meansquare value of the transverse fluctuation of velocity; (3) a term correlating pressure and strain; and (4) two terms taking account of the inhomogeneity of the flow field. The pressurestrain correlation and diffusion terms are evaluated on the basis of their difference from the other terms.
