Various properties of a necklace vortex system formed around a rectangular plate standing vertically on a flat ground wall were investigated by visualizations produced by injecting fluorescent dye into a water channel flow. As a result, it was found that the necklace vortex pattern had three steady systems depending on the Reynolds number Reh, the relative height h-δ of the rectangular plate compared with the laminar boundary layer thickness and the aspect ratio w-h. As it is expected that the aspect ratio of the rectangular plate will typify the projected area configuration of various three-dimensional bodies, the aspect ratio is varied widely from 0.5 to 7.0. The transitional boundaries of Reh and h-δ in the 2-vortex, 4-vortex and 6-vortex systems for each aspect ratio decreased when w-h < 3.0, and increased when w-h ≥ 3.0 as w-h increased. The x-direction length of the main vortex position XV1-h was almost constant when w-h < 3.0, and decreased when w-h ≥ 3.0 as Reh increased. Then, the separation length r1-h increased when w-h < 3.0 and Reh < 1000, and became almost constant when w-h ≥ 3.0 and Reh ≥ 1000 as w-h and Reh increased. Moreover, the increase of r1-h is notably rapid when w-h < 3.0.
