Sample text

Moreover, the turbulence is a ‘burst’ process and has a large-scale eddy structure. The ‘burst’ process usually occurs in the viscous layer and buffer layer. Kline et al. (1967) found that, in the direction of flow, there naturally exist alternatively distributed low and high velocity stripes in the near wall area. The low velocity stripes gradually move downstream, moving further away from the wall and upward. Having reached the buffer layer, the stripes vibrate violently and eventually break into small-scale structures.

However, in reality, the wind profile close to the surface only roughly satisfies logarithmic law, as is shown in Sect. 1. Therefore, it’s reasonable to seek the roughness in the view of the air turbulent structure. More and more relevant studies are available and interested readers may consult Raupach et al. (1991). 3 Characteristics of the Flow Field on the Wind-Blown Sand Boundary Layer For the near surface layer (less than 2 m), the turbulence is mainly influenced by the horizontal wind shear and frictional resistance of the rough surface.

According to the magnitude and importance of viscosity in the problem under discussion, a fluid can be considered as an ideal fluid or a viscous fluid. A fluid is said to be ideal in the case that viscosity or relative velocity of the fluid motion is comparatively small, so its viscous stress could be ignored in comparison with other forces. It is notable that the ideal fluid is merely an approximation model of the real fluid under these conditions. In contrast, if its viscous stress cannot be ignored, it is a viscous fluid.
