Incompressible flow past a 2D rectangular cylinder

For incompressible flow (water) past a 2d rectangular cylinder, what should be value of non dimensionalized pressure( if rho*U*U has been used for non dimensionalizing)at the first stagnation point? Rn = 80000

around 1.0

Re: Incompressible flow past a 2D rectangular cyli

Yep, I think that should be correct. The question is though whether the flow is really 2-D or not? (I asked about this myself a while back, I was talking about much lower RE though) http://www.cfd-online.com/Forum/main...cgi?read=26638

Re: Incompressible flow past a 2D rectangular cyli

Thanks for the response. The results I am getting from simulation is close to 1. Is there any refrence which gives the theory about this? It would be really nice if I could get some electronic paper or anything related to this.

I don't know but you might want to look for: Zdravkovich, M. M. 1997. Flow around circular cylinders. Vol 1: Fundamentals. Oxford University Press

hey I'm working on simulation of convection in a horizontal rectangular channel conatin eat source like electronics compounents using fluent but i'm new in FLUENT
may u help me to simulate my problem using any code
i have experimental results to valid my results
