Abstract

A series of large-eddy simulations of flow past a square cylinder at Re = 21400 have been conducted by seven groups of researchers. A comparative report is presented of the time-average results with a view to establishing any clear advantage of particular subgrid scale modelling approaches, wall treatments, and numerical methods.
