Case Study:

Separated Flow Over A Truncated Pyramid



Project Scope:

Research & Development


Flow Visualization, Fluid Dynamics, Design & Testing

The above photos show an example of flow separation. The flow is from left to right and the flow behind the pyramid is random and chaotic.

Flow separation causes excess drag and pressure drop in many products and systems. In the second photo, the flow is slower, and the pyramid is shedding vortices.
