THREE-DIMENSIONAL LAW OF THE WALL FOR TURBULENT SHEAR FLOWS

An extended law of the wall is derived for three-dimensional flows. It describes the variation of the magnitude and direction of velocity close to the wall. The effects of both the pressure gradient and the inertial forces have been taken into account. The derived wall law is valid only when the deviations from the simple law of the wall are not large. The most important feature of a three-dimensional wall law is the prediction of the rotation of the velocity vector near the wall. Comparison of the flow angle variations predicted by the present wall law with the few available experimental data shows good agreement.
