Abstract

Experiments, involving the joint effort of three European teams and aiming at using the state-of-the-art techniques to study the dynamics of the high Reynolds turbulent boundary layer, have been performed in June 2006 in the LML large wind tunnel. A set of four stereoscopic PIV systems and a rake of 143 hot wires were used to provide synchronised measurements. This paper summarises these experiments, presents sample results of both PIV and hot-wire rake data and illustrates the complementarity of such a coupled approach that combines the advantages of each technique.
