Propagation of shear-layer structures in the near-wall region of a turbulent boundary layer

Propagation of shear-layer structures in the near-wall region of a turbulent boundary layer Two non-intrusive techniques, namely laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) and the electrochemical method, have been used for simultaneous measurements of the instantaneous streamwise velocity (U) and longitudinal wall shear stress (S), evaluated in a zero pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer. The space–time correlation between the fluctuating velocity and shear stress suggests that the coherent flow structures are propagated (i) under a slight angle of 5° in the near-wall region and (ii) at an average angle of 15.5° for y +>30. It is shown that the time shift obtained from the correlation between the LDA and the electrochemical signals is due to the dynamic behaviour of the electrodiffusion probe, but also to the leaning character of the coherent structures.
