Abstract: A hybrid vortex method was developed to simulate the two-dimensional viscous incompressible flows over a bluff body numerically. It is based on a combination of the diffusion-vortex method and the vortex-in-cell method by dividing the flow field into two regions. In the region near the body surface the diffusion-vortex method is used to solve the Navier-Stokes equations, while the vortex-in-cell method is used in the exterior domain. Comparison with results obtained by the finite difference method, other vortex methods and experiments shows that the present method is well adapted to calculate two-dimensional external flows at high Reynolds number. It is capable of calculating not only the global characteristics of the separated flow but also the evolution of the fine structure of the flow field with time precisely. The influence of the grid system and region decomposition on the results will also be discussed.
