Abstract

An experimental study of the dynamic characteristics of flow past a two-dimensional circular cylinder is described. The fluctuationsoof wall shear stress, surface-pressure and velocity of the flow are measured with hot-film, hot-wire and pressure transducer. The frequency feature of fluctuations of wall shear stress is given. The cross-correlation functions of these fluctuations at any two points are calculated. The experimental results reveal that there is an overall syncronous fluctuation, at the shedding frequency, in boundary layer in the flow past a two-dimensional circular cylinder at subcritical Reynolds number.
