Uniform Flow around a Cylinder with Ansys Fluent

Ansys Fluent is utilized to understand the steady state flow around a circular cylinder. The case study describes the equations of a superpositioning of doublet uniform flow and derive the equations for the stagnations points. It will then describe the real world problem and describes the Von- Karmann vortices that is produced for low Reynolds number which is due to the effect of viscosity. 

Learning Outcome

  • Basic Understanding of fundamental uniform flow and doublet. 
  • Understanding how Ansys Fluent can be utilized to visualize this flow around a cylinder.

Applicable Courses

  • Introduction to Fluid Dynamics.
  • Fluid Mechanics I

Downloadable Content

  • A Case study description and a simulation file.
