During the last decade there has been a renewed interest in how averaged quantities of the turbulent boundary layer vary in the direction normal to the wall, especially with regard to the mean and fluctuation velocity distributions. Comparing data from different facilities and/or different techniques are, however, often inconclusive since the inaccuracies of the measured quantities may be larger than the trends one wants to investigate.
