Abstract: This paper discusses the identification of asymmetric flow about a chevron-shaped cavity. The depth-based Reynolds number was 8,300-10,700 and the effective length-to-depth ratio was varied in the range 1-5. The span-to-depth ratio was two. The upstream boundary layer was laminar. Given the symmetrical nature of the geometry, the asymmetric flow pattern was unexpected. The flow was investigated using hydrogen bubble visualisation and particle image velocimetry (PIV). The pattern is attributed to a net in-flow and out-flow of fluid about either side of the longitudinal centreline of the cavity.
