Abstract:

Limited studies of the decay pattern of induced turbulence behind cylinders were conducted. The results are shown to correlate with similar data behind grids or honeycombs, and support the validity of the turbulence decay method of analysis. The results also substantiate the theory that the decay rate of a given vortex is unaffected by the interaction of adjacent vortices. Author
