Study of Flow over a Step Cylinder

Abstract:

Article Preview

Flow over a step cylinder at ReD = 2000 and D/d = 2 was investigated using a URANS-based numerical approach. The results illustrate the downstream development and interaction of wake vortices and identify streamwise vortical structures originating at the step. The observed flow development is shown to be in agreement with experimental results. Also, a comparison of the computational results and previous experimental findings is carried out for the drag coefficient and the pressure coefficient.
