hi,
i'm doing my undergrad final year prjct on simulation of atmospheric boundary layer in wind tunnel.....have to measure wind profile, turbulence intensities and turbulence spectrum.... can anybody help with the turbulence spectrum....what i need to measure...how to get the plot? thank you in advance

Autocorrelation Function help

I am also trying to compute the turbulence energy spectrum for some velocity data I have.
My data are taken with a profiling ADV so I have u, v, w velocities for 12 points along a depth profile. These data are collected over time, which is used for a xspace proxy. In short, I have u, v, w velocity data spatially distributed across x and z dimensions (only one point in ydirection). So, 3 matrices that are 1501 (x) by 12 (z), one each for u, v, w. I understand all the steps of calculating the energy spectrum. My only problem is that I'm not sure I completely understand the autocorrelation step in Pope, especially with respect to my data. R_ij(r, x) = <u_i(x) u_j(x+r)> The <> notation is an average, correct? What does this mean for a scalar? Or is this the dot product notation? Again what does this mean for a scalar? If anyone has any matlab code for this portion that they are willing to share, it would be helpful. Thanks!

just consider a 3d Cartesian mesh and (j,k) some fixed positions. This is some lines of my Matlab code for the energy spectrum
% ____________ E_uu (streamwise)______________ % ff is a dump array for using the FFT of the field u(i,j,k) for i = 1:np+1, ff(i) = u(i,j,k); end % Discrete transform: computation of the Fourier coefficient c=fft(ff,np); for q = 1:np, c(q)=c(q)/np; end % Computation of the modulus squared. Cycle for all the wavenumbers for q=1:np, cu(q,k)=c(q)*conj(c(q)); end Then, you must simply plot your power spectrum. Generally, the computed spectrum are also computed along the whole homogeneous directions (e.g. for all the k) and then averaged to have a statistically meaning.

Thank you for your code, FMDenaro. However, it's difficult for me to understand your process without your data. Does anyone have the math formulas they used for the autocorrelation? Again, the steps I'm using are:
1. Calculate autocorrelation to get signal into wave number space 2. Take fft 3. Calculate energy E(k) = E(k) + abs(V(i,j,m))^2 + abs(U(i,j,m))^2 + abs(W(i,j,m))^2; 4. plot energy vs wave number

modes should change from N/2:N/2.

there is nothing else to do that loading the data in matlab, calling the builtin FFT and plotting the modulus of the Fourier coefficients versus the frequencies

The question has been answered in the posts above by FMDenaro, including the code! It is 3 lines in Matlab, that should be doable...

I think the third line should be: cu(q)=c(q)*conj(c(q)) As known, the velocity spectrum tensor is phi[i,j](k)=cu(k),the energy spectrum is integrated to E(k)=1/2*cu(k)*dS(k) where S(k) is the sphere's surface area with radius mag(k) is this means to calculate E(k)=1/2*cu(k)*4*pi*k^2？
