The surface shear stress distribution in the vicinity of a circular cylinder - mounted normal to a rigid flat plate - produced by the three-dimensional flow past it, is investigated numerically using the k-ɜ closure model. A comparison of the calculations with available experimental data reflects large discrepancies, indicating the inadequacy of the model for this type of vortical flow.
