How to measure vortex shedding frequency
 
Hi all,

Does anyone know how to measure vortex shedding frequency in fluent? I am modelling flow pass through a bluff body e.g. cylinder.

Thanks.

Sham.

Re: How to measure vortex shedding frequency
 
Dear Sham, To measure vortex shedding frequency of cylinder can be conducted by recorded fluctuation of lift coeff (cl). The mesh distribution around the cylinder result in FLUENT capability to resolve this vortex shedding. More clearly, I sugesst you to visit in " http://hmf.enseeiht.fr/travaux/CD010...1/num_simu.htm"
