An experimental flow visualization study was performed on a rectangular block and other elements that could be assembled in the form of a generic destroyer ship model in the Low Speed Flow Visualization Facility at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California. The purpose of the study was to visually analyze the flow field around the model in a simulated open ocean atmospheric boundary layer. To ensure correct simulation of the atmospheric boundary layer, both velocity profile and longitudinal turbulence intensities we rematched.
