Abstract

The paper reports on measurement and flow visualization on results aimed at understanding the structure of turbulence in a cylindrical boundary layer. Variable interval time averaging and uv quadrant techniques were used to detect the burst cycle near the wall. Flow visualization suggests that the wall may be less important in controlling size and motion of coherent structures in the cylindrical boundary layer than in the planar boundary layer.
