Abstract

Measurements of turbulence behavior in high-Reynolds-number fully-developed roughwall pipe flow are presented. The data are acquired with conventional hot-wire anemometry in the Princeton/ONR Superpipe, which has recently been fitted with a honed rough pipe. Turbulence intensities, higher order moments, and spectra are compared with the corresponding results from an earlier smooth-wall pipe flow study in the same facility. Accepting the experimental challenges of conducting hot-wire anemometry studies in such a facility, the rough-wall data agrees with the smooth-wall data in all statistics analyzed here.
