Abstract:

All available information on the location of separation on a circular cylinder in crossflow as a function of Reynolds number, from creeping flow to transcritical flow, has been summarized. The results of an experiment by the author in the transition or supercritical flow regime are included. The various theoretical and experimental results are discussed and compared. Areas needing additional theoretical and experimental work are pointed out.
