When averaging the Navier-Stokes or Euler equations in the circumferential direction of a turbomachine, some so-called “spatial fluctuation terms” appear in the averaged conservation equations. We give the transport equations for these kinematic spatial fluctuation correlations. We evaluate the various terms in these equations, using the results of a three-dimensional Navier-Stokes computation. The test case is a highly loaded subsonic turbine stator.

We discuss the magnitudes of the various terms. It is shown that blade force terms and diffusion terms have dominant effects, as respect to the production by the averaged field and the shear stress terms. The dissipation of the fluctuation kinetic energy occurs mainly in the passage vortex area, and in the blade wake.
