Abstract

Based upon high resolution LDA measurements over a range of momentum deficit thickness Reynolds numbers (Rθ= Ux θ/ν) from 1430 to 31 000, DeGraaff and Eaton [J. Fluid Mech. 422, 319 (2000)] propose a new mixed scaling for the near-wall region profile of the axial turbulent stress, u2. The present results support the validity of this scaling over an extended Reynolds number range 1000 Rθ 5 x 106.
