Abstract/Summary An increasing number of high quality measurements of turbulent boundary layers at high Reynolds number have been reported in the literature. These measurements come from flows that were established and developed employing different approaches and facilities. It is interesting to assess how the choice of an experimental set-up and the employment of different types of tripping device influence the state of development for such layers. The present study aims to establish, qualitatively, a relationship between mean flow parameters and higher order statistics of the flow, namely, the streamwise turbulence intensity. Detailed mean flow parameters and turbulence intensity profiles for normally tripped layers, in the sense of Coles [4], do not show dependence on the type of tripping device at high Reynolds number. However, there is some evidence indicating that naturally transition flows and artificially tripped layers that are highly perturbed during initial stages of development will not follow similar behaviour. It appears that flows with high Coles' profile parameter, П, will exhibit high levels of turbulence intensity in the outer flow region
