Samenvatting

A promising and, in terms of computer power, low-cost way of describing flow properties such as turbulent diffusion is by Langevin models. The development of such models requires knowledge of Lagrangian statistics of turbulent flows. Our aim is to det. Lagrangian statistics of inhomogeneous flows, as most turbulent flows found in practical applications are inhomogeneous. The present paper describes how a Lagrangian measurement technique, three-dimensional particle tracking velocimetry, has been developed and applied to the most common example of inhomogeneous flows: turbulent pipe flow. A new direct numerical simulation (DNS) code has been developed and exptl. results have been compared with results of this DNS code. The results concern Eulerian and Lagrangian velocity statistics at two Reynolds nos. Based on these, coeffs. of the Langevin model have been detd. and phys. consequences for Langevin modeling and turbulent dispersion have been explained. [on SciFinder (R)]
