An experimental study on unsteady turbulent near wake of a rectangular cylinder in channel flow

An experimental study on unsteady turbulent near wake of a rectangular cylinder in channel flow  Unsteady turbulent near wake of a rectangular cylinder in channel flow has been studied experimentally with a laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV). The time-averaged and phase-averaged statistics were measured for the cylinders having various width-to-height ratios, b/h. It is shown that the turbulent intensities on the centerline of the channel have their maxima near the rear stagnation point of a recirculation region. The contours of coherent vorticity and streamline reproduce clearly the shed vortices from the cylinder observed by the flow visualization. The characteristics of the flow field, which depends on b/h, are discussed and the significant contribution of the coherent structure to the flow field is clarified. Moreover, the turbulent kinetic energy budget has been examined. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

 Unsteady turbulent near wake of a rectangular cylinder in channel flow has been studied experimentally with a laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV). The time-averaged and phase-averaged statistics were measured for the cylinders having various width-to-height ratios, b/h. It is shown that the turbulent intensities on the centerline of the channel have their maxima near the rear stagnation point of a recirculation region. The contours of coherent vorticity and streamline reproduce clearly the shed vortices from the cylinder observed by the flow visualization. The characteristics of the flow field, which depends on b/h, are discussed and the significant contribution of the coherent structure to the flow field is clarified. Moreover, the turbulent kinetic energy budget has been examined.
