    Abstract

    Copyright © 2014 by ASME. The wake of a circular cylinder enclosed in various shrouds is experimentally investigated in a wind tunnel at Reynolds number of 7000. The aim of the present work is to understand the effect of different shroud types on the vortex shedding frequency and vortex structures from the shrouded cylinders. The tested shrouds are porous screen cylinders and a circular-holed shroud at various porosities of 37%, 48% and 40%, respectively, with the diameter ratio between the shroud and the inner cylinder of 1.3. Phase-averaged analysis is used to examined the large-scale coherent structures with one hotwire probe moving across the wake in the y-direction to measure the velocity components and another fixed at y/d=1 to 2 from the wake centerline to provide a phase reference to the measured velocity signals. It was found that the vortex shedding persists to some great distance downstream in the wake of the tested shrouds. While the strength of the coherent structures in the wakes of the bare cylinder and tested shrouds are comparable, those in the circular-holed shroud and screen shroud of 48% porosity are 40% higher than the former two at x/d=10.
