The flow of an inviscid incompressible fluid around a circular cylinder is commonly studied in fluid dynamics courses. There's a wikipedia article about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potential_flow_around_a_circular_cylinder.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, what about a square cylinder? There seem to be issues with simulating such flow across sharp edges or boundaries like the corners of squares. Can somebody tell me what you expect with such a scenario?
