ABSTRACT

The problem of an incompressible turbulent reattaching flow over a 2-D backward facing step with a cylinder mounted after the step was investigated numerically. The flow field was solved using the finite element numerical method with the RNG turbulence model. The effects of the cylinder diameter and position on the reattachment length, recirculation velocity, maximum axial velocity, and normalized maximum turbulent kinetic energy are reported and discussed. The cylinder could be used to modify the flow field.
