Is it possible to design a 'Kármán vortex street' behind an object in the numerical wind tunnel of RWIND Simulation?


The program RWIND Simulation implements a stationary flow calculation for non-compressible gases. The laws and wording used in this way do not change over time. Thus, the calculation outputs a result set without temporal variation.

[1] The effect of a 'Kármán vortex street', in which counter-rotating vortices develop behind a body around which flows, results in a temporal change of the flow effect. Therefore, this fluid-mechanical effect cannot be simulated in RWIND Simulation.
