Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This study is concerned with the numerical investigation of a three-dimensional wake behind a body of revolution via Large-eddy Simulations. Large-eddy Simulations with the Reynolds number ReD = 5000 based on the bluff body diameter is performed using a high-order spectral-element solver Nek5000. The focus of the study is on characterizing the wake asymmetries and time-dependent behavior observed in previous experimental studies with similar bluff body models. The time-dependent history of the wake meandering and rotating behavior will be presented.
