The impact of a local perturbation on global properties of a turbulent wake

Abstract : Stationary perturbation techniques are used to investigate the sensitivity of the global properties of the wake behind a bluff body at moderate Re. The entire recirculation bubble is found to be a sensitive region for the global frequency selection and the quality of the synchronization. A striking position is found at its center where synchronization is destroyed and the frequency is increased. High speed particle image velocimetry sheds some light into the underlying mechanisms, which are interpreted in terms of vorticity interaction, flow reattachment, and flow deviation. Strong mean flow modifications are observed to correspond to drastic changes in drag and its fluctuations
