2D flow around stationary side-by-side square columns at low Reynolds number

2D flow around stationary side-by-side square columns at low Reynolds number
2D flow around stationary side-by-side square columns at low Reynolds number
Flow over two side-by-side square columns is studied numerically and experimentally at low Reynolds number (Re=100-200) to investigate the effects of the gap distance on the behaviour of the flow. Different gap distances between two square columns are simulated to analyse the interactions of laminar wakes with a gap flow. Four different flow regimes are observed based on different gap distance. Experimental test are performed to validate the simulations. A new water tank has been built specifically for these tests due to the requirements of low Reynolds number and the high sensitivity of the gap flow. Initial experimental flow visualizations of the vortex wake confirm the findings of distinct gap flow regimes.

Abstract

Flow over two side-by-side square columns is studied numerically and experimentally at low Reynolds number (Re=100-200) to investigate the effects of the gap distance on the behaviour of the flow. Different gap distances between two square columns are simulated to analyse the interactions of laminar wakes with a gap flow. Four different flow regimes are observed based on different gap distance. Experimental test are performed to validate the simulations. A new water tank has been built specifically for these tests due to the requirements of low Reynolds number and the high sensitivity of the gap flow. Initial experimental flow visualizations of the vortex wake confirm the findings of distinct gap flow regimes.
