Energy separation in a flow around an adiabatic circular cylinder is investigated using a surface-mounted thermocouple. Energy separation mechanisms in different regions around the cylinder are discussed. Velocity measurements near the rear stagnation point and acoustic measurements indicate that shedding vortices and the wind tunnel intrinsic resonant acoustics can strengthen each other when their frequencies match producing strong energy separation.
