An experimental study on the flow of non-Newtonian fluids around a cylinder was undertaken to identify and delimit the various shedding flow regimes as a function of adequate non-dimensional numbers. The measurements of vortex shedding frequency and formation length ( lf ) were carried out by laser-Doppler anemometry in Newtonian fluids and in aqueous… CONTINUE READING
