 Title & Authors
The turbulent wake of a square prism with wavy faces
Lin, Y.F.; Bai, H.L.; Alam, Md. Mahbub;
Aerodynamic effects, such as drag force and flow-induced vibration (FIV), on civil engineering structures can be minimized by optimally modifying the structure shape. This work investigates the turbulent wake of a square prism with its faces modified into a sinusoidal wave along the spanwise direction using three-dimensional large eddy simulation (LES) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) techniques at Reynolds number
