Turbulence Intensity Measurements in Film Cooling Flows

x-direction TI y-direction TI

z-direction TI

These images show the magnitudes of turbulence intensity in the x, y, and z directions in a streamwise film cooling flow. Comparing the plots for each component, we can see that the magnitudes of the TIs are close to the same for all three directions. In other words, the turbulence in this flow is nearly isotropic, information which is important to design engineers and computational modellers.
