Lateral profiles of time-mean velocity normalized by the channel average velocity (a,d), ratio of vrms to urms (b,e) and turbulent kinetic energy normalized by the square of channel average velocity (c, f) for logs placed at center (ac) and at the side (d–f). Approach flow conditions (AF) included for reference; log center at y/B = 0 (placed at channel center) and channel wall at y’/B = 0 (placed at channel side). B is the channel width. Note that the range on the vertical axis in (c) is 20 times greater than in (f). The vertical lines indicate the log ends. For (a,b) and (de) (u and vrms/urms), the lateral profile was taken at the x-location at which flow velocity was minimum. For (c) and (f) (kt), the x-location corresponded to the peak kt.
