## Abstract

High-resolution data obtained by direct numerical simulation of turbulent boundary layers are analysed by means of orthogonal wavelets. The data, originally given on a Chebychev grid, are first interpolated onto an adapted dyadic grid. Then, they are decomposed using a wavelet basis, which accounts for the anisotropy of the flow by using different scales in the wall-normal direction and in the planes parallel to the wall. Thus the vorticity field is decomposed into coherent and incoherent contributions using thresh-olding of the wavelet coefficients. It is shown that less than 1% of the coefficients retain the coherent structures of the flow, while the majority of the coefficients corresponds to a structureless, i.e., noise-like background flow. Scale- and direction-dependent statistics in wavelet space quantify the flow properties at different wall distances.
