Default strouhal number for ellipse
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I have been looking for the Re dependence of Strouhal number for flows past an ellipse (longer diameter perpendicular to the flow direction). Surprisingly, I could not find anything in the literature. If you know some references that might be helpful for me, please let me know. I will really appreciate that.

Thanks Benarji,

It's been a while since I accessed that paper. Although the range of Re is way lower than that I am looking for (1,000-200,000), it's a useful source for me. I am still very surprised that the Re dependence of Strouhal number for an ellipse has been so rarely studied.
