At high Reynolds numbers, the logarithmic range in wall-bounded flows spans many scales. An important conceptual modeling framework of the logarithmic range is Townsend's attached eddy hypothesis [The Structure of Turbulent Shear Flow (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1976)], where high Reynolds number wall-bounded flows are modeled as assemblies of space-filling, self-similar, and wall-attached eddies. Recently, Yang et al. [Phys. Rev. Fluids 1, 024402 (2016)] reinterpreted this hypothesis and developed the “hierarchical random additive process” model (HRAP), which provides further insights into the scaling implications of the attached eddies. For example, in a recent study [Yang et a..View full abstract
