Velocity gradients in a turbulent jet flow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a selection of results from experiments on an air turbulent jet flow, which included measurements of all the three velocity components and their nine gradients with the emphasis on the properties of invariant quantities related to velocity gradients (enstrophy, dissipation, enstrophy generation, etc.). This has been achieved by a 21 hot wire probe (5 arrays x 4 wires and a cold wire), appropriate calibration unit and a 3-D calibration procedure [1]. A more detailed account on the results will be published elsewhere.
