Numerical and Experimental Study of the Unsteady Viscous Flow Generated by an Impulsively Started Elliptic Cylinder
The unsteady incompressible viscous flow around an elliptic cylinder with an angle of attack is studied in this paper by means of experimental and numerical techniques. The experimental technique is a visualization one which also gives quantitative informations such as measurements of velocity. The numerical scheme is a finite difference one. Comparison between results obtained by both methods is presented and is found to be quite satisfactory.
