Numerical methods verification for flow around objects based on its comparision with laboratory experiments by using visualization methods

Laboratory investigations of the structure of the turbulent boundary layer above the waves under conditions modeling near-water boundary layer of the atmosphere for strong and hurricane winds were carried on the Wind-wave channel of IAP RAS for 10-meters equivalent wind speed from 10 up to 48 m/s. Air flow velocity fields and mean wind velocity profiles over the curved wavy surface averaged over turbulent fluctuations were obtained by using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique.
