Flow around a circular cylinder vertically mounted in a turbulent boundary layer
Abstract
An experimental investigation is described of the flow around a circular cylinder vertically mounted on a plane wall along which a turbulent boundary layer is fully developed. In order to decrease the number of geometrical parameters, the height and diameter of the cylinder are taken to be equal in the present case. Measurements are made of the pressure distributions and the drag forces acting on the cylinder. The pressure forces of the circular cylinders are experimentally correlated with the mean dynamic pressure of the turbulent boundary layer. Drag force coefficients are found to be expressed as a linear function of the mean dynamic pressure included in the turbulent boundary layer described.
