Revisiting Taylor's hypothesis

  • P. MOIN (a1)
  • DOI:
  • Published online: 02 December 2009

Taylor's hypothesis, relating temporal to spatial fluctuations in turbulent flows is investigated using powerful numerical computations by del Álamo & Jiménez (J. Fluid Mech., 2009, this issue, vol. 640, pp. 5–26). Their results cast doubt on recent interpretations of bimodal spectra in relation to very large-scale turbulent structures in experimental measurements in turbulent shear flows.
