The suppression of periodic vortex shedding from a rotating circular cylinder
MetadataShow full item record
An experimental study of the turbulent near wake of a rotating circular cylinder was made at a Reynolds number of 9000 for velocity ratios, ?=OD/(2U8), between 0 and 2.7. Analysis of hot-wire anemometry data from the near wake indicates that the periodic vortex shedding is suppressed for ?=~2.0. It was also observed that the Strouhal number and convection speed of the vortices increases with the velocity ratio up to suppression of the vortex street. The spacing ratio of the vortices remains constant while there is a vortex street. After suppression of the street, it is observed that the convection speeds of the two rows of vortices differ while the spacing ratio diminishes. These results are consistent with an earlier stability analysis taking into account the inequality of the two shear layers. In addition, increased inequality of the two separated shear layers leads to weaker vortices in the near wake region. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Granular vortices: Identification, characterization and conditions for the localization of deformationTordesillas, A.; Pucilowski, S.; Lin, Qun; Peters, J.; Behringer, R. (2016)We relate the micromechanics of vortex evolution to that of force chain buckling and, on this basis, formulate the conditions for strain localization in a continuum model of dense granular media. Using the traditional ...

Secondary Flow Vortex Structures and Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Fluid Flow through Curved Elliptical DuctsChandratilleke, Tilak; Nadim, Nima (2014)Fluid flow through curved ducts is essentially characterised by the secondary flow effects due to duct curvature and cross-sectional flow geometry. Such flows produce vortex structures making the fluid behaviour vastly ...
