Abstract

© IAEME Publication.The effect of the blockage ratio on the steady incompressible viscous flow past a square cylinder confined in a channel is investigated numerically. In terms of the channel height with respect to the length of the square cylinder 1/4, 1/6, 1/8 and 1/10 blockage ratios are considered. For each of the considered blockage ratio the flow past a square cylinder confined in a channel is simulated up to very high Reynolds numbers. The numerical solutions of different channel blockage ratios are compared with each other and detailed results are presented.
