ABSTRACT
Immersed interface method is a non-matching boundary approach that has been taken into consideration in recent years. In this method, there is no need to coincide between the fluid and the solid grids. Eulerian grid is used for fluid domain and Lagrangian grid is used for solid domain. Using the Dirac Delta function, the connection between these two grids is established. Separation of the flow from the cylinder surface causes a high pressure drop in some parts of the cylinder, resulting in a dramatic increase in drag force. Drag force reduction is very important in some engineering issues, and several methods have been proposed to achieve this goal. In this study, the flow around a rigid cylinder is simulated. The goal is to reduce the drag force on the cylinder through one and two horizontal plates. The results are in good agreement with prior numerical results
