Conference paper


The papers selected to appear in this section represent a cross-section of current research activities on separated flows: laser Doppler anemometer measurements of highly three-dimensional separations around and over obstacles and bodies that may have large mean vortical regions; large-eddy simulations (LES) with subgrid-scale modeling of separated flows dominated by the behavior of the larger structures; calculations using Reynolds-averaged equations and several closure models to assess their relative performance as compared to data for complex separated flows.
