Abstract

Flow past a circular cylinder is a problem for understanding flow around bluff bodies. This flow has been studied both experimentally and numerically of laminar infinite flow of viscous incompressible fluid around a rotating circular cylinder at Reynolds number 80,120,160 and dimensionless rotation rate, α , (ratio of cylinder surface speed to the free stream velocity) varying from 0 to 6 has been carried out. Navier–Stokes and continuity equations were solved numerically by using finite volume technique is conducted with ANSYS CFX 15 package program. High Speed Photography and LDV, present new experimental results for correlation purposes, captured the flow profile. Rotation can be used as a drag reduction technique. Comparison with previous studies showed good agreement.
