Experimental Comparison Between Flow Over Cylinder and Cylinder with Cone Cross Section
Flow over cylinder is major issue to deal because when flow moves over circular cylinder it involves many
complex features like separation, attachment and re-circulation reverse flow and boundary layer thickness. These complex
features are responsible for increase the flow losses. In order to minimize such losses the shape of the circular cylinder is
modified to circular with cone cross section. And the set of modified objects are placed in different orientation with direction
of flow. The present work aim to understand the flow behavior on cylinder with cone cross section and this improved flow
can be utilized for power generation purpose like wind turbine blade design.
