...A. S. Bahaj; L. E. Myers; R. I. Rawlinson-Smith; M. Thomson An experimental and theoretical investigation of the flow field around small-scale mesh disk rotor simulators is presented. The downstream wake flow field of the rotor simulators has been observed and measured in the 21m tilting flume...

...Robert D. Blevins, Ph.D.; Jean-Francois Saint-Marcoux, Dr. Ing.; Mason Wu Measurements have been made of two dimensional motion of an elastically supported circular cylinder in the wake of a fixed upstream cylinder. The experiments were made in a water flow channel with 6.35 cm ( 2.5 in. ) diameter...

...Robert D. Blevins, Consultant A model is developed for the steady fluid forces on a cylinder that is in the wake of a parallel, upstream cylinder in cross flow. The fluid forces are determined by correlating experimental data with an asymptotic model of the wake. This allows both lift and drag...

...Wusheng Wu; Shan Huang; Nigel Barltrop The static equilibrium position and its associated dynamic stability of a cylinder situated in the wake of an upstream cylinder is investigated in this paper. Both the upstream and downstream cylinders are elastically mounted on springs to allow for streamwise...
