WALL PRESSURE FLUCTUATIONS AT SMOOTH AND ROUGH SURFACES UNDER TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYERS WITH FAVORABLE AND ADVERSE PRESSURE GRADIENTS

Fluctuating wall pressures under turbulent boundary layers with favorable gradients were measured at both smooth and rough walls. Wall pressure intensity was found to vary in proportion to mean wall shear stress between no-gradient and favorable-gradient flows. Adverse gradient boundary layers were studied over smooth and rough walls. These flows were not self-preserving, and results are presented as functions of longitudinal position. Pressure intensities were concentrated into a comparatively narrow band of frequencies. Pressure statistics are discussed. (Modified author abstract)
