Abstract:

A virtual-surface DNS is used to examine hairpin formation caused by a pair of suction holes below a laminar wall-bounded flow. The work models an experiment, presently underway, in which quasi-periodic hairpins are to be generated in a laminar plane-Poiseuille flow. We present some brief preliminary studies of vortex dynamics and find both symmetric and antisymmetric modes of shedding. We also examine the effect of inter-hole spacing on hairpin formation.
