Abstract:

This contract has included work on three related but distinct projects. 1 Separated flows, flow structure in detachment and reattachment zones, and diffuser computation methods 2 Study of turbulence structure and heat convection in turbulent boundary layers on concave surfaces, and 3 Completion of a data library of complex turbulent flows in machine-readable form for use as input to modeling and for checking computations. Originator-supplied keywords include Diffuser flows, Prediction methods, Turbulent flow, Separated flow, Concave walls, Heat transfer, and Turbulence structure.
