An experimental investigation was carried out to study the turbulent flow over a flat plate in a wind tunnel. The turbulence was generated by a plate with diamond-shaped perforations mounted perpendicular to and on the leading edge of the flat plate. Unlike conventional grid turbulence studies, this perforated plate had a finite height, and this height was explored as a key independent parameter. Instantaneous velocity measurements were performed with a 1D hot-wire anemometer to reveal the behavior of the flow a short distance downstream of the perforated plate (X/D = 10–30). Different perforated plate heights (H = 3, 7, 11 cm) and free stream velocities (U = 4.5, 5.5, 6.5 m/s) have been studied.
