Measurements of Reynolds Stress Profiles in the Stern Region of a Ship Model
Paper in proceedings, 1982
In the present investigation Reynolds stress profiles have been measured at different positions in the stern region of a ship model. The measurements were carried out using a hot-wire technique in which the mean velocity component perpendicular to the surface was considered. From the turbulence profiles it may be concluded that streamline convergence (divergence) as well as wall curvature strongly influence the Reynolds stresses.
