2) the effects of power law index on the wake can be rationalized as follows: For the confined cylinder, the effective shearing increases in the gap between the cylinder and wall which leads to the growth of apparent viscosity for a shear-thickening fluid with moving away from the obstacle, resulting a viscous layer protects a region behind the cylinder, so the streamlines cannot penetrate easily and the formation of wake is increased, whereas the apparent viscosity is decreased for a shear-thinning fluid and so the wake formation is delayed.
