Experiments have been conducted on a cylinder with a forward splitter plate at Reynolds number of 5.33 × 104. Ten different splitter plate configurations are considered wherein the leading edge of the splitter plate is modified. The flow development on the splitter plate and on the cylinder has been examined using PIV. Static pressure on the cylinder surface and hot wire measurements in the cylinder wake have been carried out. A maximum of 57% increase in base pressure is observed with the use of splitter plate leading edge modification as compared to the simple cylinder case.
