Title: Aerodynamics of two-dimensional slotted bluff bodies

Abstract

Aerodynamic characteristics of two-dimensional, slotted bluff bodies were experimentally investigated. Flow visualizations, base pressure measurements, mean velocity vector measurements, and drag force measurements were conducted to analyze effects of spacing ratio (i.e., porosity), curvature, and vent. Low porosity model configurations produced stable near-wake patterns with enhanced vortex sheddings of overall wake formations. Model curvature reduced drag forces and weakened the vortex sheddings. Stabilizing effect of curvature on the near-wake patterns was also found. A vent combined with large model curvature was found to control drag force effectively, as well as suppressing vortex sheddings. 10 refs., 52 figs., 1 tab.
