- Published 2008

Three-dimensional numerical simulations of laminar flow around a circular cylinder with sinusoidal variation of cross-section along the spanwise direction, named ‘wavy cylinder’, are performed. A series of wavy cylinders with different combinations of dimensionless wavelength (λ/Dm) and wave amplitude (a/Dm) are studied in detail at a Reynolds number of Re = U∞Dm/ν = 100, where U∞ is the free-stream velocity and Dm is the mean diameter of a wavy cylinder. The results of variation of mean drag… CONTINUE READING
