Abstract

In this study, flow over an isolated sphere for a Reynolds number (Re) between 500 and 1000 and a Mach number (M) between 0.8 and 2.0 is investigated via direct numerical simulation (DNS) of three-dimensional compressible Navier–Stokes equations. We focused on the Mach and Reynolds numbers effect on the flow geometry, the flow regime, and the drag coefficient. The results show the following characteristics: 1) for previous studies, the flow field is axisymmetric for Re ≤ 300 and 1.2 ≤ M, but asymmetry and unsteadiness appears at Re = 750 and 1000, respectively, 2) the drag coefficient by DNS indicate different trends to the previous drag models.
