Abstract
It is generally accepted that the direct effects of density fluctuations on turbulence are small if the root-mean-square density fluctuation is small compared with the absolute density: this is Morkovin's hypothesis (Favre 1964, p. 367). This means that the turbulence structure of boundary layers and wakes at free-stream Mach numbers Me less than about 5, and of jets at Mach numbers less than about 1.5, is closely the same as in the corrcsponding constant-density flow. By "turbulence structure" we mean dimensionless properties like correlation coefficients and spectrum shapes: the skin-friction coefficient cf == Tw/tPeU; and other ratios of turbulence quantities...
