This directory contains integral quantities and velocity profiles for five selected streamwise positions, obtained from DNS and LES of a turbulent zero-pressure-gradient boundary layer. The data is free to use; please include a proper reference to the original publications.

In case of any questions, e.g. related to the data, or whether you wish for additiona data not presented here (e.g. integral quantities as a function of Re, additional wall-normal profiles of Reynolds stress budgets), please contact Philipp Schlatter, pschlatt@mech.kth.se.

A more or less concise description of the data and the underlying simulations is given in a recent presentation delivered at the 7th International Symposium on Turbulence and Shear Flow Phenomena (TSFP-7) in Ottawa, Canada, July 31, 2011: TSFP7-Presentation.pdf, and the corresponding proceedings article: 0I5P.pdf.
