Abstract

This work aims to develop a process for controlling a cylinder wake, especially the von Karman vortex street, in such way so as to drastically reduce the drag coefficient. A new technique for influencing the cylinder wake is proposed in the present experimental study. The flow around a circular cylinder is perturbed by temporarily changing the cylinder diameter. Experiments have been performed for Reynolds numbers in the range Re=9,500 to Re=31,500. Three values of the controlling frequencies are considered: fs 1=0.41, fs 2=0.54 and fs 3=0.73, in addition to the stationary case corresponding to a non-deformable cylinder, fs 0=0. The visualisation flow shows that the pulsing motion of the cylinder walls greatly influences both the near and far wake dynamics. A decrease of the drag is expected.
