The effects of a favourable pressure gradient and of the Reynolds number on an incompressible axisymmetric turbulent boundary layer. Part 2. The boundary layer with relaminarization

This is an experimental investigation of two turbulent boundary layers (cases 2 and 4) where the streamwise negative pressure gradient changes mean properties of the flow, e.g. mean velocity profiles and skin friction, so that they display laminar-like behaviour. The maximum acceleration parameter K[les ]4×10−6 and the starting value of the Reynolds number is 862 or 2564. Relaminarization occurs in both boundary layers as a gradual change of the turbulence properties and is not catastrophic. Retransition, however, is a fast process due to the remaining turbulence structure and may be compared with bypass transition. Together with an extensive investigation of the turbulence structure as in the companion paper, Part 1, which describes two cases (1 and 3) of boundary layers which remain turbulent, spectra and integral length scales for all four boundary layers are discussed.
