Abstract : The behavior of controlled wave disturbances in turbulent channel flow was studied experimentally and theoretically. The work is relevant to Landahl's waveguide theory of shear turbulence. It is shown that the interaction between the organized waves and the turbulence must be considered in such a theory. (Author)
