Recent innovations in the off-shore wind industry have lead to bigger wind turbines and taller support structures. These towers can suffer from vortex-induced vibrations (VIV). The present work couples the open-source CFD solver OpenFOAM with a structural solver to investigate these fluid-structure interactions (FSI) effects in more detail. 2D...

Cylinder flow has been extensively studied for decades due to its numerous direct and indirect relevance to the real-life applications. Being a bluff body, the cylinder experiences flow separation with large wake leading to significant drag force thus the drag reduction on the cylinder is sought. In the long-running history of cylinder flow,...
