    Abstract

    Dual-stream flows are a ubiquitous feature of turbofan engines used in civil aviation. In this paper we analyze the spatial structure of turbulence correlations in a high speed round coaxial jet operating at heated conditions. In particular we consider the effect of axisymmetry of a second rank correlation tensor and the usual fourth order Reynolds stress auto-covariance tensor that enters the Goldstein’s generalized acoustic analogy formulation. The invariants of these tensors can be reduced to a simpler form depending on whether isotropy or axisymmetry was assumed. We show that an axisymmetric turbulence approximation remains accurate in the core region but tends to break down in the bypass stream and especially in the interfacial region between both streams where high level of mixing of turbulence takes place. In the paper we present some of our latest results and provide a road map for the future calculations that we have planned.
