Abstract

In this experimental study, two types of slat models were used to fit on a circular cylinder; a fully slatted (slats placed evenly around the cylinder) and a partially slatted model (slat system leaving larger openings at the front and at the rear of the cylinder). Hot wire anemometric technique was used to study the wake flow within the downstream region between 3 cylinder diameters to 6 cylinder diameters, measured from the centre of the model, and in a plane about 6.5 diameters from the free end of the model. The model has a length-to-diameter ratio of 10, and the Reynolds number for the experiment was about Re=3x10.
