LES method is applied to simulate numerically a turbulent separated and reattached flow around a surface-mounted plate. Smagorinsky model is used in the analysis and fundamental equations are discretized by means of the finite volume method, and their resulting finite difference equations are solved using SMAC method. The calculations are conducted for Re = 105. It is found that the present numerical results, in general, agree well with the previous experimental ones. The complicated vortical flow structures around the plate and their time variations are visualized through various fields of flow quantities.
