 August 31, 2012, 11:15 How to get the vortex frequency #1 Senior Member   mohammad Join Date: Dec 2010 Location: Seoul, South korea Posts: 214 Rep Power: 8 Dear all, I have simulated a finite span S809 blade with DES using transient simulation. For analyzing the noise generated by the vortical system, I need to have the vortex shedding frequency of the simulation... Can anyone tell me how to get (calculate) it in the post processing of the results? Tnx in advance Last edited by mohammad; September 1, 2012 at 10:42.

You can get the simulated pressure variation (ie noise) from that.

My case is a Synthetic Jet Actuator case, and I monitored the lift and drag fluctuations duiring the transient run, My non-dimensional frequecy is F+ = 0.97, thus the lift and drag frequncy are the same and is very near to the actuator frequency. We know that the Lift is the direct result of the pressure distribution. Now my question is: " Can I safely say the vortex shedding frequency is the Lift and Drag frequency? " Regards Last edited by mohammad; September 2, 2012 at 23:54.

Anyhow, I highly appreciate your favor

As glenn said you could check it with your monitor point plot minimum pressure in a plane behind your geometry against time and find out the frequency from that. __________________ -D.B
