Vortex shedding model of a flapping flag

  title={Vortex shedding model of a flapping flag},
  author={S{\'e}bastien Michelin and Stefan G. Llewellyn Smith and Beverley J Glover},
A two-dimensional model for the flapping of an elastic flag under axial flow is described. The vortical wake is accounted for by the shedding of discrete point vortices with unsteady intensity, enforcing the regularity condition at the flag’s trailing edge. The stability of the flat state of rest as well as the characteristics of the flapping modes in the periodic regime are compared successfully to existing linear stability and experimental results. An analysis of the flapping regime shows the… CONTINUE READING
