Abstract : A comprehensive study of periodic turbulent boundary layers and pipe flows has been completed. The study has resulted in the identification of the various operating regimes of these flows and the appropriate parameters to characterize them. Comprehensive experimental data on the mean and turbulent properties of these flows, obtained using laser doppler anemometry, have been archived on magnetic tape. (Author)
