Tall buildings are often subjected to steady and unsteady forces due to external wind flows. Measurement and mitigation of these forces becomes critical to structural design in engineering applications. Over the last few decades, many approaches such as modification of the external geometry of structures have been investigated to mitigate wind-induced load. One such proven geometric modifications involved rounding of sharp corners. In this work, we systematically analyze the effects of rounded…

Large eddy simulation of flow past a square cylinder with rounded leading corners: A comparison of 2D and 3D approaches

The unsteady flow past a square cylinder with rounded leading corners is predicted at Re = 2600 by large eddy simulations (LES). The corner radius r is fixed at 3 mm and the cylinder width D is 12.7

Effect of rounding side-corners on aerodynamic forces and turbulent wake of a cube placed on a ground plane

This paper describes the experimental study of a flow past a cube with rounded side-corners placed in a ground plane under the condition of δ/D < 1, where δ is the thickness of the upstream boundary

Supercritical flows past a square cylinder with rounded corners

Large-eddy simulations were used to investigate the supercritical aerodynamics of a square cylinder with rounded corners in comparison with those in the subcritical regime. First, the numerical

Flow instabilities in the wake of a rounded square cylinder

Instabilities in the flow past a rounded square cylinder have been numerically studied in order to clarify the effects of rounding the sharp edges of a square cylinder on the primary and secondary
