These vortices are formed by flow separations, for which the longitudinal coherent vortices inside turbulent boundary layers on vehicle surfaces are presumably playing an important role.

The turbulent flow is modeled with a standard k-[epsilon] model and "enhanced wall function," which is considered to be more accurate for predicting turbulent boundary layer flow.
Velocity measurement in turbulent boundary layer of drag-reducing surfactant solution.
A turbulent boundary layer is assumed on the basis of Reynolds numbers close to the transition between laminar and turbulent flow; an early breakdown of the laminar boundary layer is probably triggered by the combined effects of leading edge roughness and the rapid clapping of the leading edge of the scallop during swimming.
The spectrum has the typical "hay stack" shape of a turbulent boundary layer.
East [3] measured the acoustic pressure of deep cavities in the turbulent boundary layer (1.

Additionally, the shear lag coefficient in Green's lag entrainment equation of the turbulent boundary layer model was adjusted and deviation from the equilibrium flow has been coupled to the shape factor of the boundary layer [3].
