IJREI- Analysis of Vortex Formation around a Circular Cylinder at low Reynolds Number

Downloads: 96 Avg Rating: 0.00 By: Mr Prashant Rai in 2016.
Vortex shedding is one of the most interesting phenomenon in turbulent flow. This
phenomenon was first studied by Strouhal. In this paper, the analysis of vortex shedding
around a 2 dimensional circular cylinder with Reynolds No of 200, 500, and 1000 with
different angle of attack 00, 50, and 100 has been studied. In this simulation an implicit
pressure-based finite volume method and second order implicit scheme is used. Flow has
been studied with the help of Navier-Stokes and continuity equations. The pressure, drag
coefficients and vortex shedding for different Reynolds numbers and different angle of
attack were computed and compared with other numerical result that show good
agreement.
