Von korman vortex analysis in ANSYS Fluent

This project deals with simulating the flow around a cylinder to visualise the von korman vortex street.  In order to perform this simulation, a computational domain will be defined in the form of a virtual wind tunnel. A steady & transient simulation has been ran to analyse the vortex street by calculating strouhal number using FFT plot . Then, the simulation has been carried out for various velocities to analyse the trend of aerodynamic forces with respect to reynolds number. Finally, the results will be compared with the experimental results to get an idea of which solution and turbulence models to use and fine tune the setup to provide the best results. 

  • You will learn the theory behind creating a virtual wind tunnel
  • You will understand the meshing setup and requirement for prism layers and mesh refinement
  • You will understand the basic theory behind Von karman vortex street
  • You will analyse the variation of drag and lift with respect to reynolds number
