Abstract:

Results are given of experimental studies of turbulent wakes in the plane and axisymmetric cases under positive and negative longitudinal pressure gradients and an approximate method of calculating such wakes is discussed. A positive longitudinal pressure gradient promotes more rapid decay of a turbulent wake than in the zero gradient case, whereas the opposite is true for a negative pressure gradient. Author
