It depends on the Re number, At Re>100, you will probably observe the Von Karman street, which is a non stationary phenomena. So you should perform an unsteady simulation. But the Von Karman street is something difficult to simulate.

At lower Re number (say less than 50) the flow will probably be steady.

You can try a laminar approach with Fluent, but I'm affraid it may not converge. So a standard k-epsilon turbulence model could be used for initial trial.

For other details, it should be standard Fluent use.

Hope it helps.
