Low-speed experiments are made for an axisymmetric separated, reattached, and redeveloped flow over a longitudinal circular cylinder with blunt leading edge. The flow characteristics such as the reattachment length and the flow pattern in the separated region are measured. The redevelopment of the flow downstream of reattachment is also investigated through various experimental results.
