Higher order moments of velocity fluctuations and their gradients in turbulentwall-jets
2014 (English)In: Springer Proceedings in Physics, 2014, 17-20 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
The concept of local isotropy is addressed in a turbulent wall-jet. Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of a reacting turbulent wall-jet flow are used to evaluate the probability density functions (PDF) and higher order moments of the velocity and of the gradient in our set-up, in order to illustrate different aspects of the degree of isotropy at small scales.We observe a strong persistency of small-scale anisotropy up to y/y1/2 ≈ 1.5, where y1/2 is the half width of the jet.
