Nearwall similarity in the threedimensional turbulent boundary layers. III  Sheardriven flow results
Abstract
Ten of eleven proposed threedimensional similarity models identified in the literature are evaluated with direct wall shear, velocity field, and pressure gradient data from a threedimensional sheardriven boundary layer flow. Results define an upper limit on velocity vector skewing for each model's predictive ability. When combined with earlier results for pressuredriven flows, each model's predictive ability with and without pressure gradients is summarized. The utility of some twodimensional type indirect wall shear measurement methods and wall shear inference methods from nearwall velocity measurements for threedimensional flows is also discussed.
