Abstract The flow around two cylinders of square cross-section arranged perpendicular to each other has been investigated in a steady, low-turbulence, uniform flow at Reynolds numbers of 2×104 and 1×104 (based on cylinder diameter and freestream velocity). Complex three-dimensional interference effects were found to exist in the wake of the cylinders, the precise nature of which is dependent upon their spacing. If the distance between the axis of each cylinder is less than three diameters, the interference effects are dominated by secondary flows associated with horseshoe vortex structures generated at the centre of the configuration, wheareas at spacings beyond this critical value, the disturbance is largely confined to the wake of the downstream cylinder. The paper examines these interference effects in detail for axis spacings up to a maximum of ten diameters.
