Abstract : This volume is a continuation of AGARDographs 223.253 (Fernholz and Finley 1977, 1980). The data compilation for 59 nominally two dimensional compressible shock-free flows presented in AGARD0graph 223 is supplemented by a further 18 cases, including some shock-boundary-layer-interactions. The data are also available on magnetic tape from AGARD centres as for AGARD 223. The text preceding the compilation gives a review of the available turbulence measurements. The measurements are compared on the basis of inner and outer region similarity relationships. There is little evidence of any quantitative correlation between different experiments. There is also an examination of the breakdown conditions for the Van-Driest-Crocco meanflow temperature-velocity correlation and the associated transformation procedures. The effects of extreme transverse curvature on the mean flow are briefly considered.
