Transient effect of a Boger fluid flowing around a confined cylinder
Li, XF; Bu, HT; Zhao, DL
AbstractThis paper is concerned with the numerical simulation of the transient effect of an inertialess Boger flow past a confined circular cylinder and the comparison of predictions with particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements given by Shiang et al.. Dynamic simulation based on the Oldroyd-B constitutive model was carried out using a Lagrangian-Eulerian algorithm. The evolution of velocity field was obtained for the flow at two Deborah (De) numbers, i.e. De = 1.2 and 3.0. At low De, the flow reached steady state rapidly, and showed a symmetric flow regime. However, at high De, the time required to reach steady flow behind the cylinder increased significantly, and the distribution of the velocity field appears to be asymmetric with respect to the stagnation line. Fairly good agreement between the numerical results and the experimental observations is reported. It can be concluded that both the experimental measurements and the present simulations indicate that the elasticity of the polymeric flow strongly affect the flow regime of viscoelastic flow around a confined cylinder.
