A SPLITTER PLATE FOR THE PREVENTION OF VORTEX SHEDDING BEHIND FINITE CIRCULAR CYLINDERS IN UNIFORM CROSS FLOW
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
Vortex shedding of circular cylinders in uniform cross flow may be prevented by the installation of a radially extending plate, which is rigidly attached to the cylinder. The principle of vortex shedding prevention by such a splitter plate is explained and the minimum dimensions of the plate are theoretically derived and compared with experimentally found values.
