Ground effects on pressure fluctuations in the atmospheric boundary layer

  • M. M. Gibson (a1) and B. E. Launder (a2)
Abstract

Proposals are made for modelling the pressure-containing correlations which appear in the transport equations for Reynolds stress and heat flux in a simple way which accounts for gravitational effects and the modification of the fluctuating pressure field by the presence of a wall. The predicted changes in structure are shown to agree with Young's (1975) measurements in a free stratified shear flow and with the Kansas data on the atmospheric surface layer.
