Test for 3D moving body
Dear counterparts,

Could anyone help me to find any experimental or computational results of moving or oscillating 3D body (for example, it may be prolate spheroid) in a viscous laminar flow for a validation of the "Immersed Boundary Method"?

Thanks for any suggestions, Anvar

Re: Test for 3D moving body
We have available data which has not yet been published. We made surface pressure and wake measurements on an oscillating 3D model in incompressible flow. The model has the geometry of an Apollo re-entry capsule and the measurements are performed at Reynolds number range of 10^4<Re<10^6.

Oscillating results are not yet published but the results on stationary model are published in several occasions:

Re: Test for 3D moving body
Dear Ozgur,

Thank you very much for your information. I'll try to find your articles.

Re: Test for 3D moving body
For my dissertation, I computed the flow over an oblate ellipsoid, both spinning and non-spinning. The flow was viscous and laminar, but compressible. If this is what you are looking for, you can download my dissertation from,

Alex, Thank you very much. I'll see you dissertation and perhaps find useful information.
