Utilization of exterior surface dimples for stream-wise force reduction for a circular cylinder in cross-flow

Abstract:

Applying dimples on spherical bluff bodies have been found to be a major technique to control the surface flow and reduce the stream-wise force. However, not much work has been done on dimple applications on cylindrical Objects .

This research project aims to investigate, firstly, whether the stream-wise force on a circular cylinder could be reduced by using dimples on its outer surface. Secondly, if it could, whether there is an optimum design that gives the biggest force reduction...
