Wake Length calculation in FLUENT
Hello all

I am new to FLUENT and currently working on my bachelor thesis on Flow past circular cylinders. I have to obtain length of wake and maximum negative velocity inside wake in 10<Re<50 range. How to get these values in FLUENT?

Do I need to write any UDF?

Thanks in advance.

Please someone tell me the way to obtain length of recirculating wake in FLUENT. I am losing time to finish my project.

Can anyone give me the definition of recirculating wake length in flow past circular cylinder?

I mean what length exactly to take. Is there any possibility to obtain this from velocity plots?
