Plenary Talk Title

Large spatial range measurements in high Reynolds number wall-bounded flows



Particle image velocimetry has played a pivotal role, over the past decade or so, in enabling detailed planar and space-time measurements in wall-bounded turbulent flows. In this talk we will focus on high-Reynolds turbulent boundary layers that demand a large spatial and temporal range. A review of measurements taken over smooth and rough walls will be considered, with detailed comparison made between the smooth and rough-wall cases using simultaneous large and small-field PIV. Insights into the resulting scale interactions will be discussed.
