What i have done so far i have a created a 2d model of a pipe within a square and passed the flow over it. But becuase the pipe in the middle is fixed it wont create any vortexs. I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am not really an expert in fluent and have only been using it for a short while. javad.emamgholizadeh likes this.

But what i am getting is just showing a vortex around the pipe wall. do I need to use dynamic mesh for this case?

In this tutorial you can learn how to obtain vortex-shedding and calculate the Strouhal number. One reason why you are not detecting vortex-shedding in your simulation may be the discretization of the convective terms in the Navier-Stokes equation. In general, first-order upwind and power-law interpolation generate false-diffusion and make difficult to simulate vortex-shedding. You must use at least second-order schemes.
