  • Flow around bluff bodies such as circular and elliptical cylinder is the fundamental fluid mechanics problem. Many engineering applications such as off shore structures, bridge piers and pipelines can be modeled as a circular cylinder but flow over complex bodies like wings, submarines, missiles, and rotor blades, in which the parameters such as axis ratio, angle of attack and initial velocity profile can influence the flow characteristics of the wake, nature of separation and forces (Drag and… CONTINUE READING
