Numerical simulations of wake flow generated by a surface-mounted square cylinder over a subsequent square cylinder are presented for incompressible low-Re turbulent flow. The behaviors of the square cylinder in the wake flow are investigated. A developed numerical method — Semi-Implicit Method for Pressure-Linked Equations (SIMPLE) is adopted to solve the governing equations in steady state. Turbulence effect is modelled by Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations with a standard k-ω turbulence model. The k-ω SIMPLE method is validated by comparison with experimental data. The results show that in wake flow, the square cylinder produces a much weaker wake effect and is subjected to an inverse drag force.
