Abstract

Oscillatory flow around a circular cylinder close to a plane boundary is numerically investigated at low-to-intermediate Keulegan–Carpenter ( $KC$ ) and Stokes numbers ( $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FD}$ ) for different gap-to-diameter ratios ( $e/D$ ). A set of unique flow regimes is observed and classified based on the established nomenclature in the ( $KC,\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FD}$ )-space. It is found that the flow is not only influenced by $e/D$ but also by the ratio of the thickness of the Stokes boundary layer ( $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}$ ) to the gap size (e). At relatively large $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}/e$ values, vortex shedding through the gap is suppressed and vortices are only shed from the top of the cylinder. At intermediate values of $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}/e$ , flow through the gap is enhanced, resulting in horizontal gap vortex shedding. As $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}/e$ is further reduced below a critical value, the influence of $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}/e$ becomes negligible and the flow is largely dependent on $e/D$ . A hysteresis phenomenon is observed for the transitions in the flow regime. The physical mechanisms responsible for the hysteresis and the variation of marginal stability curves with $e/D$ are explored at $KC=6$ through specifically designed numerical simulations. The Stokes boundary layer over the plane boundary is found to be responsible for the relatively large hysteresis range over $0.25<e/D<1.0$ . Three mechanisms have been identified to the change of the marginal stability curve over $e/D$ , which are the blockage effect due to the geometry setting, the favourable pressure gradient over the gap and the location of the leading eigenmode relative to the cylinder.
