Brief description This project aims to investigate the flow transition from laminar to turbulent in the wake of a circular cylinder subjected to steady current. The project expects to generate new knowledge on the complicated flow behaviours and physical mechanisms for flow transition to turbulence through advanced numerical modelling. Expected outcomes include a physical understanding of the flow evolution to turbulence, as well as an understanding of the laminar and turbulent flow characteristics and the suppression of turbulence in the context of flow control. The knowledge generated will be applicable to improved design and safe operations of the sub-sea transmission and communication cables used in the offshore oil and gas industry and the emerging offshore renewable energy industry.
