Title: Flow past a cylinder at a Reynolds number of 10,000 without control

Description: Large-eddy simulation of flow past a circular cylinder at a Reynolds number of 10,000. Video shows the baseline case without active flow control in terms of vorticity magnitude contours, which are colored by the streamwise velocity. The solution was obtained with a sixth-order accurate numerical method using 24 million grid points
