Default Confined or moving cylinder
Posts: n/a

Does any one have some references concerning numerical studies of laminar flow around fixed cylinder in confined channel or moving cylinder in infinite medium. In both cases, the Reynolds number (calculated with the cylinder diameter and the inflow mean velocity) which interests me is between 50 and 300.

Thanks for your help and time consideration.

Dear Mohamed,

The best (so far) steady solutions were obtained by Fornberg. Note however that in the Re range you indicated the steady flow becomes unstable. I hope you can find non-steady stuff in the paper by Koumoutsakos & Leonard.

Sorry for the funny format of Formberg references, this is just a portion from my paper prepared with LaTeX, that is why.

Hope this will help.
