Numerical Simulation of Interaction of a Current with a Circular Cylinder near a Rigid Bed
Abstract: The numerical modeling of a 2D flow around a horizontal cylinder near a rigid bed with the gap ratios G/D = 0, 0.2, 0.3 at Reynolds numbers 840, 4500, 9000, and 9500 is investigated by using weakly compressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics. The velocity field and the separation angles from the present simulations are compared with those obtained from the experimental measurements and are in a good agreement. The results show that the maximum value of shear stress on the bed increases as the cylinder closes the bed and suddenly decreases when the cylinder contact the wall.
