Turbulence Pattern in Triangular Cylinder


Article Preview

In order to predict a turbulent flow around a triangular cylinder a high Reynolds number of 45000 is done in the numerical simulation. In this simulation both steady and unsteady vortex shedding is predicted and various time steps. The numerical method used in this simulation is Reynolds Stress model. For steady and unsteady solution velocity contours and velocity vector plots is to be predicted for the vortex shedding behind the triangular cylinder.
