Abstract

Measurements downstream of 20SUP and 30SUP convex and concave bends with radii of curvature 5 to 10 times the boundary layer thickness are described. Analysis shows that relaxation downstream of the concave bends is non-monotonic; this can be explained without invoking structural changes but in fact large changes in second and third order structure parameters do occur.
