    Abstract

    The limits of applicability of the random vortex method incorporating the vortex in cell technique for two-dimensional viscous flow around a circular cylinder are appraised. The importance of a system for establishing convergence is demonstrated. Results are presented for the benchmark test of impulsively started flow, for oscillatory flow and for postcritical flow in a current, where small-scale turbulence is simulated by a simple turbulence model. Possible developments are discussed.
