Here we have some visualisation of the wake of a normal flat plate. The plate is quasi-two-dimensional (spans the water channel). It has very sharp edges to reduce Reynolds sensitivity to the thickness of the plate. The Reynolds number in this case is 1582.

Data was acquired using high-speed PIV, and then phase averaged based on the first two oscillating POD modes.
