|Abstract:||Purpose - The paper aims to report on the flow past a porous trapezoidal-cylinder, in which the porous-fluid interface was treated by implementing the stress jump boundary conditions. Design/methodology/approach - The numerical method was based on the finite-volume method with body-fitted and multi-block grids. The Brinkman-Forcheimmer extended model was used to govern the flow in the porous medium region. At its interface, a shear stress jump that includes the inertial effect was imposed, together with a continuity of normal stress. Findings - The present model was validated by comparing with those for the flow around a solid circular cylinder. Results for flow around porous expanded trapezoidal cylinder are presented with flow configurations for different Darcy number, 10UP-2/UP to 10UP-7/UP, porosity from 0.4 to 0.8, and Reynolds number 20 to 200. The flow develops from steady to unsteady periodic vortex shedding state. The first coefficient IT/IT has a more noticeable effect, whereas the second coefficient IT/ITDN1/DN has very small effect, even for ITRe/IT ? = ? 200. Originality/value - The effects of the porosity, Darcy number and Reynolds number on lift and drag coefficients, and the length of circulation zone or shedding period are studied.
