Grahic Jump Location
Smoke visualization of the streaklines passing through and downstream of an array of plates with c=2.54 cm,t=0.38 cm, i.e., c/t=6.66, and U=2 m/s
Grahic Jump Location
The spatial correlation of the downstream axial velocity as a function of y/H obtained using two hot-wires, transversely separated by a distance H, with c=2.54,t=0.38, i.e., c/t=6.66, and U=2 m/s. Symbols: x/t=1.5, ○; x/t=5, ▪;x/t=15, ▴; and x/t=45,× . The normalized uncertainty of the spatial correlation is estimated as ±0.01.
Grahic Jump Location
Cross correlations of the downstream velocity with c=2.54 cm,t=0.38 cm, i.e., c/t=6.66,U=2 m/s and x/t=5. (a) has one probe above the surface of plate0, i.e., at y/H=0.305, and the other probe above the surface of the adjacent plate, i.e., at y/H+Δy/H=1.305. (b) has one probe above the surface of plate0, i.e., at y/H=0.310, and the other probe below the surface of the adjacent plate, i.e., y/H+Δy/H=0.690.
