2018 : Mathematical Modeling of Drag Coefficient Reduction in Circular Cylinder Using Two Passive Controls at Re= 1000

Prof. Dr. Ir. Tri Yogi Yuwono DEA.


Abstract

One of the many ways to reduce drag force is by adding a small object called passive control. Two passive controls will be placed in front and at the rear of the main object. The main object used is a circular cylinder, and the passive controls used are the Type-I cylinder in the front and an elliptical cylinder at the rear of the main object. The distances between the main object and the passive controls are varied. The Reynolds number used is 1000. The effective distance between the main object and the passive controls is analyzed by using the mathematical model so that the drag coefficient on the main object is compared with the simulated one.
