Abstract : The report presents work done to investigate the effects of a non-uniform flow field on the angle of separation for flow about a circular cylinder. Experimental data was compiled which shows that the angle of separation is relatively small in regions where the free stream velocity is high and is relatively large in regions where the free stream velocity is low. The angle at which separation occurred on a circular cylinder was found to vary from 70 degrees to 101 degrees. Data was collected for a Reynolds Number range of 10,000 to 100,000. (Author)
