@article{Tchen1953ONTS, title={ON THE SPECTRUM OF ENERGY IN TURBULENT SHEAR FLOW}, author={Chan Mou Tchen}, journal={Journal of research of the National Bureau of Standards}, year={1953}, volume={50}, pages={51-62} }

A turbulent flow with a given spatial pattern of mean motion invariant with time is treated. No solid boundary is considered. By means of the Fourier analysis of the NavierStokes equation, it is possible to obtain an equfl,tion of energy balance in spectral terms. T his involves the following functions: Viscous dissipation, transfer, production, convect.ion, and diffmion. The first two functions are common to the isotropic and homogeneous turbulence without mean motion. Assuming that eddies… Expand
