Influence of blowing on the anisotropy of the Reynolds stress tensor in a turbulent channel flow

Influence of blowing on the anisotropy of the Reynolds stress tensor in a turbulent channel flow The effects of localized wall blowing through a porous strip are investigated using hot-wire anemometry in a turbulent channel flow.

Abstract

The effects of localized wall blowing through a porous strip are investigated using hot-wire anemometry in a turbulent channel flow. Three blowing magnitudes are studied: σ=0.22, 0.36 and 0.58, where σ is the momentum flux gain ratio and that of the incoming channel flow at three different positions from the spanwise porous strip. The main emphasis of this work was the departure from isotropy of the turbulent flow with localized blowing. The anisotropic invariant map (AIM) for the Reynolds stress tensor revealed that blowing decreased the anisotropy of the turbulent structure in the near-wall region, and a decrease in the longitudinal integral length scale was observed when the blowing rate increased.
