TURBULENT SHEAR FLOWS

The meeting was held in order to clarify understanding of the basic physical structure of turbulent shear flows such as boundary layers, jets and wakes, in non-reacting flows of gas. Factors considered were the basic structure of 'equilibrium' shear flows and the influence of compressibility, pressure gradients, surface curvature, three-dimensional flows, noise, density and/or temperature gradients. Thirty-four papers were presented, four being invited from internationally known authors to present an overview of the field of turbulent shear flows. Papers in Session 1 present new information on the structure of the boundary layer. Session 2 covers theoretical treatments. Papers in Sessions 3 and 5 are primarily concerned with new experimental boundary layer results, and in Session 4 with jets and wakes. Papers in Session 6 cover a series of special areas in turbulent shear flows. (Author)
