Abstract
The vortex shedding past a circular cylinder in a two- dimensional channel of varying height is presented in the term of Strouhal number by solving continuity and momentum equations using FLUENT 6.3. The computational grid structure is generated by using Gambit. In this analysis, the result is carried out with blockage ratio b=80, 0.83, 0.85, 0.88 and Reynolds number range from 50 to 300
