Graduate student

The distribution of turbulent energy in a plane parallel to a flat surface over which a turbulent boundary layer is developing is illustrated by transparent surfaces representing a 3D streamwise velocity spectrum over streamwise wavenumber , spanwise wavenumber and frequency. The integration of this spectrum over each of the coordinate directions is depicted on the three side walls to help illuminate the shape of this spectrum.
