Abstract

Particle image velocimetry has been applied to the study of a canonical turbulent boundary layer and to a turbulent boundary layer forced by transversal wall oscillations. This work is part of the research programme at the Politecnico di Torino aerodynamic laboratory with the objective of investigating the response of near-wall turbulence to external perturbations. Results are presented for the optimum oscillation period of 100 viscous time units and for an oscillation amplitude of 320 viscous units. As expected, turbulent velocity fluctuations are considerably reduced by the wall oscillations. Particle image velocimetry has allowed comparisons between the canonical and forced flows in an attempt to find the physical mechanisms by which the wall oscillation influences the near-wall organized motions.
