Abstract

The complex turbulent flow produced downstream of a cylindrical or square bar has frequently been considered as a model problem due to its fundamental physical importance as it encompasses interactions among anisotropic regions, large scale recirculations, unstable shear layers and periodic or quasi-periodic energetic shedding of vortices (Bearman, 1984; Roshko, 1993). Fundamental understanding of the turbulent processes involved in a range of generic bluff-body configurations as well as other complex flow/geometry derivative combinations of practical importance is necessary to improve methods of prediction and allow better control or exploitation of these flow features.
