Wake length behind a circular cylinder
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello guys.
I'd like to calculate the Wake length behind a circular cylinder for Reynolds number 40 (2D Geometry,laminar, steady) in Star ccm +. My Drag coefficient is 1.1864 . How can i calculate the Wake length in Star ccm? I know,the Length of the Wake is, Lw is defined as the streamwise distance between the confluence point (wake stagnation point) and the rear stagnation point of the cylinder.
Thanks!

Won't plotting u_x on the center-line behind the cylinder and looking for a sign change work?
