Abstract

The flow resulting from the oblique collision without rebound of a circular cylinder with wall in a still viscous fluid is investigated both computationally and experimentally. We focus on the dynamics of the different vortex systems that form during such a motion and on their dependance on the impact angle. For this purpose, dye visualizations and numerical simulations using a spectral-element method are performed.
