An Estimate of the Pressure Strain, Rate Tensor in a Plane Cylinder Wake
Paper in proceedings, 1994

The far wake of a cylinder has been studied in order to provide accurate experimental information on the normal component of the pressure-strain rate tensor by balancing the turbulent kinetic energy budget and Reynolds stress transport (RST) equations. A non-isotropic dissipation rate tensor was found, thus fulfilling the basic physical integral constraint of the diffusion and indicating an energy redistribution as described by the pressure-strain rate correlations.
