The research was performed during a stay of V.Bertram as a visiting, scientist of MHI R&D Center in Nagasaki sponsored by the German Research Association (DFG). The authors are grateful for the assistance of VBD, namely Dipl.-Ing. A.Gronarz, for updated data on measurements. We thank H.Sato for his assistance for the RANSE computations.
