The objective of this project is to improve our fundamental knowledge of turbulent flows over rough surfaces. Specifically, we hope to investigate the manner in which roughness affects the near-wall drag-producing turbulent structures, and to what extent surface roughness affects the outer part of rough-wall boundary layers. Ultimately we hope to use this knowledge to propose control strategies to reduce momentum loss in rough-wall boundary layers.
