INVESTIGATION OF THE TURBULENT PROPERTIES OF THE WAKE BEHIND SELF-PROPELLED, AXISYMMETRIC BODIES

The turbulent wakes behind a streamlined drag body, a jet propelled body and a propeller-driven body are studied experimentally in the VPI Stability Wind Tunnel at a nominal free stream velocity of 206 ft/sec. The turbulence properties investigated are axial, radial, and tangential turbulence intensities, and radial and tangential shear stresses.
