TNO Fysisch en Elektronisch Laboratorium Contributor Gavrilakis, S. (editor) Machiels, L. (editor) Monkewitz, P.A. (editor) Publication year 1996 Abstract We have re-exanined the established data for the mean velocity profile for turbulent flow over a smooth surface and found its Reynolds number dependence in the inner region to be remarkably large. By combining two eddy-viscosity models (with overlapping validity in the inertial sublayer), this feature is shown (both analytically and numerically) to arise from inner-outer sublayer interaction, involving a nonzero viscous correlation length.
