The study is based on K-ε turbulence modeling using both structured and unstructured grids. The pressure distributions in the flow field and on the surfaces of the bodies are determined. Different parameters that affect the flow field such as Reynolds number, aspect ratio of the body, and flow direction are considered. Special concern is paid to the separations at the corners of the body and the circulations behind the body. The thermal behavior due to the flow field is also considered. Nusselt number on the heated surfaces of the body is examined. The thermal behavior of a given body is strongly dependent on its aerodynamic characteristics. Comparisons are made between the present results and the available experimental data. Artificial Neural Network (ANN) was used to predict the values of the drag coefficient. Many useful conclusions and suggestions were drawn from the study.
