Validation and parametric studies of discrete vortex method on flow around bluff bodies

Yalçın, Ruhi Deniz
Aerodynamical analysis of rectangular sections, and a bridge deck section are investigated by 2D Discrete Vortex Method for two dimensional, unsteady, incompressible and viscous flows which is developed using C++ programming language. The numerical algorithm and methodology are explained in detail. The numerical method is validated by comparing its results with several experimental results. Moreover, the sensitivity of numerical solutions is examined by some control parameters which inhibit the most significant effect on the numerical solutions.
