Near wall characterization of the flow over a two-dimensional steep smooth hill

Near wall characterization of the flow over a two-dimensional steep smooth hill Near-wall data for the strongly perturbed flow in a neutrally stable boundary layer encountering a steep, smooth, two-dimensional hill are presented. Observations were made on the centerplane of a water channel at thirteen stations relative to the hill by laser Doppler anemometry. The large reverse flow region that is formed on the lee of the hill was particularly scrutinized through seven measuring stations. Results are presented for the mean and turbulent properties of the flow. Wall shear stress was evaluated through fitting procedures that resorted to the near wall behavior of the velocity profile. Logarithmic fits as well as predictions through the Reynolds stress profiles are also presented. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
