Attention is focused in this study upon the development of a surface renewal-based analysis of transitional turbulent pulsatile flow and upon the experimental measurement of the instantaneous wall region turbulent periodicity. The resulting theoretical predictions and experimental measurements for periodicity provide a direct test of the validity of the model. The theory and experiment taken together provide further physical insight into the mechanism associated with this complex problem.
