résumé Adverse pressure gradient turbulent flows are of prime importance for aeronautics as they are characteristic of the suction side flow along an airfoil at any positive angle of attack. These flows have been known for a long time to pose modelling problems. The turbulence behaviour departs significantly from the standard near wall turbulence (as observed in flat plate boundary layers and channels). In diffusers, as well as in boundary layers, the flow separates from the wall as soon as the adverse pressure gradient is strong enough. In the present contribution, a few selected data from the literature are reviewed and compared together and with a recent DNS of converging–diverging channel flow performed in the frame of the WALLTURB project. This simulation provides data on APG near wall flow, both with and without curvature. The analysis of these data indicates that an instability is developing inside the turbulent near wall flow in both cases. The comparison of turbulent statistics with the data from the literature indicates that this phenomenon is fairly general in APG near wall flows.
