Abstract

In this work, a detailed numerical analysis of two dimensional mean velocity profiles downstream of two parallel flat plates was carried out at a Reynolds number of 3.2x104 (based on the plate length and free stream velocity) using Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) and have been compared with experimental data. Furthermore, a self-similar study of the wake behind the twin plate was carried out based on the computer simulations. The main objective is to investigate how well the simulations can reproduce the physics of the flow behind a twin plate.
