Grahic Jump Location
The configuration of the cylinder array studied
Grahic Jump Location
Phase-average mean (a) and rms (b) velocities for a measurement location. The data before filtering (dots) exhibit statistical fluctuations which are removed with a low-pass filter. The filtered result yields improved estimation of the measured quantities and smooth curves. Cut-off frequency=100 Hz.
Grahic Jump Location
The pulsation waveform upstream of the cylinder array. Two pulsation cycles correspond to 360 deg (one vortex shedding cycle)
Grahic Jump Location
Sectional streamlines of the unsteady mean flow
Grahic Jump Location
Mean vorticity contours
Grahic Jump Location
Peak vorticity as a function of phase-angle
Grahic Jump Location
The global flow pattern around the third row in the cylinder array. Flow direction is from top to bottom.
Grahic Jump Location
The instantaneous flow structure in the measurement region with superimposed phase-average mean velocity vectors: (a) ϕ=0 deg; (b) ϕ=12 deg
Grahic Jump Location
The turbulence kinetic energy field
Grahic Jump Location
The periodic and random Reynolds stress for ϕ=0 deg; (a) ũũ/Ub2, (b) ṽṽ/Ub2, (c) uu/Ub2, (d) vv/Ub2. Periodic mean velocity and the corresponding Reynolds stress as a function of phase-angle; (e) streamwise and (f ) transverse component.
Grahic Jump Location
Distributions of the periodic and total Reynolds stresses; (a) ũũ/Ub2, (b) ṽṽ/Ub2, (c) u⁁u⁁/Ub2 and (d) v⁁v⁁/Ub2.
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison between unforced (open symbols) and forced flow (solid symbols) in terms of the time-averaged velocity statistics (a) streamwise mean velocity, (b) transverse mean velocity, (c) streamwise total rms velocity, and (d) transverse total rms velocity.
