Abstract
The coherent structure of a turbulent boundary layer at zero pressure gradient and for the gradient of adverse pressure was investigated. The hydrogen bubble method was employed to examine the turbulent flow in a two dimensional diffusion sector in a water channel. In a separate work, tensor calculus was used to derive three dimensional weak conservation form equations, time dependent flow surface iterative equations, and characteristic theory of nonorthogonal spherical coordinates. These equations and theory are useful in solving the three dimensional turbomachine transonic flow field.
