An experimental and numerical investigation of the turbulence field in the vicinity of a rotating cylinder in a quiescent fluid has been carried out. Radial distributions of mean velocity and non-vanishing Reynolds stress components have been measured using hot-wire technique, and corresponding components have been calculated with a low-Reynolds number second- moment closure model. From the measurements it can be concluded the turbulence field is established in the present set up at a Reynolds number which is roughly twenty times larger than earlier measurements have shown. Comparisons between calculations and measurements yield some deviations. However, a qualitatively good agreement is obtained. In the paper, different methods for the determination of the friction velocity are also described and discussed.
