On the characterization of the fine‐scale intermittency of turbulence

Zubair, Lareef M.

Some characterization of the fine-scale intermittency of turbulence is attempted utilizing the method of Kuo and Corrsin [J. Fluid Mech. 50, 285 (1971)] and the "envelope method" of Sreenivasan [J. Fluid Mech. 151, 81 (1985)]. It is found that the outcomes of these techniques are sensitively dependent on the details of the methods, and hence cannot be interpreted with complete confidence.
