ON THE PREDICTION OF INTERMITTENT TURBULENT FLOWS

A theoretical model is presented which permits the conservation equations of fluid dynamics to be conditioned in a fashion analogous to the experimentalist's technique of "conditioned sampling". The detailed analysis refers to the best-known sampling condition, outer-edge intermittency; but the model equation may be applicable to other flow situations, wherein conditioning exposes details of the physical phenomena. The analysis results in predictions of the flow variables within the turbulent flow and of the intermittency. Comparison is made with two sets of experimental results for the two-dimensional mixing layer and with a boundary layer.
