Abstract

Recently we developed a new upwind finite-element scheme for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. In this paper we apply the scheme to a problem of high Reynolds number flows past a circular cylinder and discuss the effect of the subdivision of the boundary layer upon flow patterns and drag coefficients.
