Turbulence effects on surface pressures of rectangular cylinders
Q. S. Li and W. H. Melbourne

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    Turbulence effects on surface pressures of rectangular on two-dimensional rectangular cylinders. Particular attention is given to possible effects of turbulence integral scale on fluctuation and peak pressures. The mean, standard deviation, peak pressure coefficients, spectra and cross-correlation of fluctuating pressures were measured to investigate the nature of the separation and reattachment phenomenon in turbulent flows over a wide range of turbulence intensity and integral scale.
 
Key Words
     bluff body aerodynamics; turbulence effects; surface pressures; wind tunnel testing.
