THREE-DIMENSIONAL BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW ON ROUGHNESS STRIP OF FINITE WIDTH
Described are the results of an experimental study of a well-developed, turbulent boundary layer on a smooth, flat surface encountering an area of much rougher surface. The roughened area is a strip with its length extending in the direction of the mean flow but of finite width in the surface direction normal to the flow. The resulting three-dimensional flow differs significantly from previously studied cases involving step changes in roughness of infinite extent in the direction normal to the flow. Extensive experiments were carried out in a wind tunnel having a length of nearly 100 ft (30.5 m) with a boundary layer thickness of the order of 18-20 in. (0.5 m). Pitot tube and hot-wire anemometer measurements were made of mean velocity and Reynolds stress quantities in great detail throughout the flow field.
