Reverse Flow Characteristics in a channel with fixed angle of attack following variable width and stagger
받음각이 큰 평판 채널 내의 역류 유동 가시화
Reverse flow occurs in a channel when there is an obstruction at the entry, However it has been shown recently that reverse flow can be realized without an obstruction, by staggering the sides of the channel and placing it at an angle of attack to the oncoming flow. In this study the latter flow is computationally investigated. And the mechanism is investigated using PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) method. The results have captured all the essential features of this complex phenomenon and show the time dependent pumping mechanism which leads to the occurrence of reverse flow.
