Variational Multiscale LES Investigation of Drag and Near-Wake Flow of an Axisymmetric Blunt-Based Body
The characterization of the relationship between the base pressure of bluff bodies and the geometrical and fluid dynamical parameters defining a certain configuration is a complex and still open problem, of interest for both fundamental research and practical applications.
