Abstract

The means of controlling vortex shedding from a yawed cylinder at different sweep back angles 0°, 45° and 60°, are currently investigated at the University of Arizona. Periodic excitation emanating from two slots located symmetrically at different circumferential locations was used in this case. Pressure measurements on the surface and velocity measurements in the near wake were carried out at various spanwise locations along the cylinder. The velocity field was mapped by using a three-dimensional Particle Image Velocimeter (PIV).
