In fluid dynamics, vortex shedding is an oscillating flow that takes place when a fluid such as air or water flows past a cylindrical body at certain velocities, depending on the size and shape of the body. In this flow, vortices are created at the back of the body and detach periodically from either side of the body. The vortex possesses extremely high and diverse levels of energy that can be utilized for an abundance of practical applications in our society. Finding new, cleaner, cheaper, and innovative methods of energy production and efficiency is a popular topic in today's society and effects everyday engineering, economical, and political agendas. Probably the first time, ages ago, that anyone placed a blunt obstacle in a flowing fluid he or she observed the whirlpools or vortices that naturally form and shed downstream. In everyday life the examples of vortex shedding are numerous.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
