Abstract

Experimental evidence is presented of Reynolds number sensitivity in recirculating flows around bluff bodies. This has been observed in both stable and intermittent vortices generated by a building, and are particularly significant to wind loading where stable vortices occur, frequently at oblique flow directions. The evidence of Reynolds number sensitivity of vortex flows raises questions about coherent flow structures in boundary layer flows including the atmospheric boundary layer.
