History forces and the unsteady wake of a cylinder

Chaplin, J. R. (1997) History forces and the unsteady wake of a cylinder Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 393, pp. 99-121.

Record type: Article


History forces on a stationary cylinder in arbitrary unsteady rectilinear flow are calculated by means of a model based on the asymptotic properties of the steady-state wake. The results capture many features found in numerical solutions of the Navier–Stokes equation for the same flows, though quantitative agreement deteriorates as the Reynolds number increases over the range 2 to 40. The cases studied are the impulsive start, stop, and reverse, and oscillatory flow.
