Abstract
A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP THE METHODOLOGY FOR A WAKE TURBULENCE MODEL THAT TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE INTERACTION BETWEEN LARGE-SCALE, LOW FREQUENCY, AND SMALL-SCALE, HIGH FREQUENCY COMPONENTS OF TURBULENT FLOW. THE MODEL WILL BE CONSTRUCTED BY FORMULATING THE GOVERNING EQUATIONS FOR THE BEHAVIOR OF THE LARGESCALE STRUCTURE, COMBINED WITH EXISTING MODELS FOR THE EFFECT OF THE BACKGROUND TURBULENCE. A STANDARD WAKE TURBULENCE DATA SET WILL BE USED TO VALIDATE THE MODEL. THE GENERAL APPLICABILITY OF THE PROPSOED MODEL TO FUTURE WAKE TURBULENCE DATA INVOLVING MULTIPLE SCALESIZE EFFECTS WILL ALSO BE ASSESSED.
