Abstract : The structure of the turbulent boundary layer on a flat plate consisting of alternate, longitudinal strips of smooth and rough (Sand paper, Grit 4) surfaces parallel to the direction of the flow has been investigated. Measurements of mean velocity, wall shear stress, turbulent intensities, turbulent shear stresses and energy spectra of the streamwise turbulent velocity were obtained. (Author)
