Abstract:

Incompressible separated flows have long presented problems to the theoretician. Parallel shear flow over a cavity is an ideal flow configuration to evaluate numerically to shed light on fundamental relationships. It also provides a basis to predict flow properties in some practical applications. An extensive study of steady Stokes two-dimensional flows illuminates the roles of parallel velocity profile, channel height to cavity length ratio, and cavity shape. It is concluded that the separation phenomenon can only be described adequately by solving for the complete flow field.
