Abstract [en]

A new facility to study wall bounded turbulent °ow has been designed and will be installed in the laboratory of Center for International Collaboration on Long Pipe Experiments "CICLoPE" in Predappio (Italy). The facility consists of a large pipe, allowing to reach high Reynolds numbers, where all turbulent scales can be resolved with standard measurement techniques. The pipe operates with air at ambient conditions and has a close loop circuit allowing to maintain stable conditions over long period of time. The pipe is located in a tunnel 60 m underground, thus ensuring very low level of external perturbations. Great care has been taken during the design phase to minimize all potential disturbances in order to ensure optimal measuring conditions along the whole pipe.
