Threedimensional wake of a swept wing
Abstract
Mean velocity profiles and six components of the Reynolds stress tensor profiles were obtained by studying a three dimensional turbulent wake. Agreement between hotwire techniques used to measure Reynolds stress is good, with a four wire probe being particularly promising. An integral technique for calculating wake development is presented. For solving the partial differential equations, a simple model in which the shear stress is assumed to be aligned with the yderivative of mean velocity works well.
