laminar test case

Does anyone have (or know where to find easily) experimental data for flow around a 2D cylinder at low Reynolds numbers (Re=20). Particularly interesting would be the seperation length.

Thanks, Oliver

Re: laminar test case
You can find all that in books, I think there is a good book on Boundary Layers (and separation) that speaks about the cylinder, but right now I cannot remember the exact name of the author, it is something like Schilling. Anyhow, why don't you check the list of books on this site?

Maybe someone else has more accurate references to give you.

Good luck, Patrick

Re: laminar test case
Do you find the length of the recirculation zone in there? I think I remeber that I once did not find it. Anyway, I will check again.

I don't know... I haven't got my copy available here.
