|Title: ||Fluid Dynamics Video of flow around a seismic streamer|
|Authors: ||Elboth, Thomas|
|Keywords: ||turbulent flow|
|Issue Date: ||6-Oct-2008|
|Abstract: ||This video shows a high Re-number unsteady turbulent boundary layer surrounding a long cylinder that is towed through the ocean.
Previous work on flow around long cylinders have often focused on the case where the flow-direction is perfectly aligned with the cylinder. In this work we show that in an ocean environment, a cross-flow components is present. This has a significant influence on the shape and development of the turbulent boundary layer.|
