Numerical Analysis of Oscillating Flow about a Circular Cylinder
Hanson, Craig D.

The numerical experiments, carried out through the use of a pressure-velocity coupled method to solve the Favre Averaged Navier-Stokes equations, on steady and sinusoidally oscillating flows at five different Keluegan-Carpenter numbers, and three periodicity levels are described. A second-order in time, second-order in space, second-level predictor-corrector finite difference scheme has been used. The solutions were solved by the CFD-ACE program from the CFD Research Corporation. The analysis has produced in-line force coefficients comparable to those obtained experimentally for sinusoidally-oscillating flows.
