Abstract:

Solutions, for both two-dimensional flow and threedimensional axially symmetric flow, are reviewed for the three major free turbulent shear flow topics the turbulent shear layer, the turbulent wake, and the turbulent jet. Several models for the turbulent shear stress were used in some of these solutions. The solutions are compiled in consistent nomenclature and compared. For each of the three topics, the defining partial differential equations for the particular turbulent shear stress models and geometric conditions are given, followed by the transformation of the variables utilized in obtaining a solvable differential equation. Finally, the solution is presented. Experimental mean velocity profile data for each condition are correlated and reduced to a single curve using the least squares curve fitting technique. A table of coordinates for each curve is given, including the standard deviation from the mean. Other experimental information is also tabulated. Author
