This experimental study describes the turbulent wake behind a two-dimensional porous obstruction, consisting of a circular array of cylinders. The cylinders extend from the channel bed through the water surface, mimicking a patch of emergent vegetation. Three patch diameters (D) and seven solid volume fractions (Φ) are tested. Because flow can pass through the patch, directly downstream there is a region of steady, non-zero, streamwise velocity, U1, called the steady wake. For the patch… CONTINUE READING
